Jerome Moses - 1957

25 hours 36 minutes - Passing all Stations

According to Rebecca Morris (who rode the system for 67+ hours and wrote about in 1974), the name of the frugal Flushing teen who was immortalized on the back of the subway maps circa 1960 was Jerome Moses. 1

Though made famous on the back of the subway maps, Moses' ride was not the first recorded bid to travel the whole subway.  That honor goes to Herman Rinke.
