NYIF was first mentioned in the introduction to a book called Stock Exchange Procedure by Birl E. Shultz, PhD. In 1921:

“It became evident that, for the sake of the business itself and for the sake of the thousands of young men and women employed by the Exchange and by its member firms, some method should be devised whereby they might learn the fundamentals; the reasons why they did the things which occupied their working days” NYSE president Charles Gay, 1921: This was the inspiration behind the establishment of the New York Institute of Finance In 1922.
