There's scope for further expansion here, as tagged:

  • There's more to say about Ide's early political career, as state senator, Republican delegate, and so forth.
  • There's more to say about Ide's family. Two children are mentioned thus far. He actually had four. He also had a wife.
  • There's more to say about Ide's business affairs. He was a bank director (for several banks), a bank trustee, and receiver of the Knickerbocker Trust Company of New York.
  • There's more to say about Ide's honorary degrees, such as the one from Dartmouth College.
