The only other names I know of who were propreiters/managers around 1890-1910 ish were Tilley Haynes and Dan C Webb and numerous postcards and menus of the hotel in that time frame display those two names for the Broadway Central (the Southern is not mentioned and may, as I mentioned, have been already incorporated into the renovated "Grand Central" which had been renamed "Broadway Central" by the 1880s (the hotel was included in Kings handbook of NYC" (C) 1892 and mentioned an extensive renovation by Tilley Haynes who took it over)

Haynes was well known for running a very large successful hotel in Boston and used stationary letterheads that included
the names/addresses of both hotels.
