Biography of Charles A. Greenlaw
Arizona Biographies





CHARLES A. GREENLAW, manager of the Greenlaw Lumber Company, of Flagstaff, was born at St. Stephens, New Brunswick, in 1855, but was reared and educated in the State of Maine, where the family removed when he was very young. Brought up in the midst of a purely lumber country, he became thoroughly familiar with every detail of the business, and was thereby fitted in a practical way for his present position. Mr. Greenly went to Minneapolis in 1877, where he was engaged in lumber business for three years, when he moved further west and lumbered on the divide in Colorado. He came to Flagstaff in 1882, before the railroad was run through, and for several years was identified with the Ayer Lumber Company, but in 1886 he formed a partnership with his brother, E. F. Greenlaw, under the firm name of Greenly Brothers, who had a large mill and became contractors for the Arizona Lumber & Timber Company. From the firm of Greenly Brothers was finally evolved the present firm of Greenlaw Lumber Company, which is one of the most substantial and prosperous enterprises of its kind in the state. In politics he is Republican, and has served one term as member of the Board of Supervisors. Mr. Greenly is prominently known in the Masons, Odd Fellows and Elks. He was married in 1883 to Miss Eleanor Lamport, and they have one of the finest homes in Flagstaff. Their family consists of two sons and four daughters. The oldest son, Eben, is associated with the Greenly Lumber Company.
