Leonard Bailey (inventor)
Leonard Bailey (1825-05-08 in Hollis, New Hampshire – 1905-02-05 in New York City) was a toolmaker/inventor from Massachusetts, USA, who in the mid-to-late nineteenth century patented several features of woodworking equipment. Most prominent of those patents were the planes manufactured by the Stanley Rule & Level Co. (now Stanley Works) of New Britain, Connecticut.
Commonly known as Stanley/Bailey planes, these planes were prized by woodworkers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and remain popular by today's wood craftsman. A type study of his patented planes and the rest of the Stanley line may be found at Patrick Leach's "Blood and Gore".
Bailey's design ideas are still utilized by Stanley and other plane manufacturers to this day.

how the sound of New York came from four Brooklyn high schools | Musical Urbanism
how the sound of New York came from four Brooklyn high schools by Leonard Nevarez on Sep 17, 2013 • 2:55 pm 3 Comments One of the great eras in New York City music comes not from a ‘scene’ of musicians and audiences as we normally think of this term, but from the very mercenary activities associated with the songwriters, publishers, and promoters associated with the city’s Tin Pan Alley. In Always Magic in the Air: The Bomp and Brilliance of the Brill Building Era (Viking, 2005), historian Ken Emerson makes a strong case for the quintessentially New York sound that was composed, arranged, and produced by Jerry Lieber, Mike Stoller, Neil Sedaka, Doc Pomus, Carole King, Gerry Goffin, Mort Shuman, Barry Mann, Cynthia Weil, Neil Diamond, Howard Greenfield, Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich, and others who plied their trade in nondescript Manhattan office buildings.
