MACHOLD, HENRY EDMUND ( New York, 1921, 1922, 1923, 1924) was born on July 5, 1880, in Amsterdam, New York. Graduating from local schools, he attended Albany Law School in New York and read law in Amsterdam. During the Spanish-American War he served in the New York militia. Machold began operating a dairy farm in Ellisburg, New York, in 1900. He joined the banking industry in 1919, eventually becoming president of the Northern New York Trust Company.

A Republican, Machold entered politics when he was elected to the New York Assembly from Jefferson County in 1911. He remained there for thirteen consecutive years, and he was named speaker for the 1921, 1922, 1923, and 1924 sessions. While in the post he advocated lowering taxes and successfully opposed Governor Alfred E. Smith's attempts to reorganize the state bureaucracy. Machold declined nomination to the U.S. House in 1928, instead becoming state chair of Herbert Hoover's presidential campaign. In addition, he was chair of the 1922 New York GOP Convention and a delegate to the 1932 Republican National Convention.

Returning to his financial interests, Machold was vice-president of the St. Regis Paper Company and the Niagara Mohawk Power Company ( 1932-50). In 1934 he was accused of trying to influence state legislation concerning utilities. He was married, and he belonged to the Masons. Machold died on February 6, 1967, at the age of 86.
