Biography of Charles Goldman
Arizona Biographies





CHARLES GOLDMAN, vice president of the National Bank of Arizona, Phoenix, has been a resident of Arizona for forty two years, and of the city of Phoenix all but five years of that time. At the time of his arrival in Phoenix not a frame or brick store had been erected and but few in that day, and those of exceptional foresight, would hazard a prediction that it would develop into the prosperous city it is today. In the city's growth and development in every way Mr. Goldman has been a strong influence. Born in Bavaria, Germany, October 17, 1845, he received a practical industrial education in the schools of his native country. In the spring of 1866 he came to this country, and the first year was employed in Philadelphia. He then went to California by way of the Isthmus of Panama, and remained there until 1871, when he came to Arizona. He first located in Prescott, and then was engaged in general merchandise in the Williamson Valley. This business was disposed of to purchase the business of his brother in Phoenix, and another brother joining him in this enterprise, the firm of Goldman Brothers was formed. He also became interested in ranches and cattle and gradually increased his holdings in these industries, which proved to him a marked success financially. He helped organize The National Bank of Arizona, and for many years was one of its Board of Directors. He has also been an active member of the Phoenix Board of Trade. In politics, a Democrat, but not an office seeker, his entire time has been devoted to his personal bushiness and the healthy interests of his home town. Mr. Goldman was married in 1881 to Miss Sarah Fleishman, whose father, Benjamin Fleishman, was one of the pioneers of California. Their family consists of Rose Bell, Sidney and Eugene Goldman.
