It seemed that a few days earlier, Clausen had been visited in his official Park Commission office by a man named Oscar F. Spate. Spate seemed amiable enough, and he offered Clausen a proposition Clausen saw no difficulty in accepting. It seemed that Spate said he wanted to place comfortable rocking chairs in the parks throughout New York City. And for the privilege of doing so, Spate offered the city the tidy sum of $500 a year.
Folding chairs have been around for centuries and were most popular during the middle ages. Wood was the original material for these chairs which were used during the old days in various parts of the world such as ancient Egypt, Rome, Europe and Greece. During the 15th and 16th centuries, the folding chair grew even more popular and began to have arms and headrests in order to provide more comfort to its user. Since then, many variations of the chair have come up in the form of aluminum folding chairs, metal chairs and many more.
This new phenomenon was covered extensively and very contentiously, in the following day's daily New York City newspapers. And the man on the hot seat was the president of the Park Commission - one George C. Clausen.
