CHANLERAlbert Stevens Crockett, Old Waldorf Astoria Bar Days, 1931
Several members of the well known Chanler family were among the patrons of the Bar. Solon thinks this was named after "Sheriff Bob" Chanler, the artist, whose matrimonial adventure with Mme. Lina Cavalieri, formerly of the Metropolitan Opera, was a sensational episode of the first decade of the century. "Bob" knew all the Waldorf bartenders by their first names.
