    Perhaps the James L. Tryon who was New England Director of the American Peace Society around 1915, as in books.google.com/books?id=5FM2AQAAMAAJ&pg=PA122&l... and had been active in the Massachusetts Peace Society earlier. See his 1913 article "Work of the Massachusetts Peace Society" at archive.org/stream/jstor-20666610/20666610#page/n1/mode/2up The moustache in www.swarthmore.edu/library/peace/Exhibits/aps.and.trueblo... is certainly compatible. This is from an exhibit on the American Peace Society [www.swarthmore.edu/library/peace/Exhibits/aps.and.trueblo...].

    Thank you for your research swanq. The information you found squares with the library's name authority for James Libby Tryon. But I also find a James L. Tryon as director of admissions at MIT. He shows up with gray hair in some of their vintage silent films about the school. Is it the same person?

    Yes, the Peace activist and the MIT Director of admissions do seem to be the same person. Look at www.learningace.com/doc/5313799/8e3cd5a0da4f51e3f7f14a82d... and scroll down to bottom left of the first page of this 1935 issue of an MIT publication. A piece on Dr. Tryon begins there and carries on to page four confirming that he is indeed the man who worked for peace organizations early in his career.
