Ernest Hopkinson Residence - New York City 1120 Fifth Avenue at 93rd Street<br> New York, N.Y. 10128<br> Ernest Hopkinson was born in Chester, England, on May 20, 1872. He emmigrated to the United States as a young man where he studied law and was admitted to the bar in New York City in 1895. Two years later, in 1897, he became patent counsel for the Peerless Rubber Company, which was later absorbed by the United States Rubber Company. At the parent company, Mr. Hopkinson was known for his research and development in the rubber and allied chemical fields. In 1915, he was made patent counsel of the parent company and four years later was elected vice president. He held hundreds of patents, including one for the process of the flat-band method of building automobile tires. Another notable process he developed was the spraying of rubber to treat latex as it came directly from the tree in preparation for shipment. His last and most important patent was for the creation of Lastex, the trade name for thread with a rubber core. He helped U.S. Rubber to establish and develop its vast rubber plantations in Sumatra, and frequently traveled abroad to share his technical knowledge of his many inventions and developments with rubber leaders in England, Italy and Germany.<br> Ernest Hopkinson was married to Bessie Barnes and the couple produced a daughter and two sons. Around 1924, the Hopkinsons moved to 1120 Fifth Avenue, on the northeast corner of 93rd Street. The 15-story building was built as a cooperative in 1924 and the following year its virtual twin, 1115 Fifth Avenue, was completed directly across 93rd Street. Both buildings were designed by J. E. R. Carpenter, the leading designer of luxury apartment buildings in New York City in his generation.<br> Ernest Hopkinson died in his Fifth Avenue home on May 3, 1933, after a six months&#39; illness, at the age of 60. Mrs. Hopkinson died in 1948.
