      A search of the historical records in this office did not reveal a bar admission for Charles W. Wandless, but did show that an Edgar Griffin Wandless, residing in New York City, was admitted to practice by the Appellate Division, First Department, in October 1915 and filed his oath on May 12, 1916. The records available to this office do not contain any other information. I am not certain whether the admitting Appellate Division department has available the biographical information you request. However you may direct any further inquiry to that court
