CHARLES L SMALL
In industrial circles of Riverside, Charles L. Small has long been recognized as a man of energy and ability, his
progressive spirit having greatly aided in the success of the wholesale fuel and feed business established by his
father, H. K. Small, in 1902, and which the son has served as secretary and treasurer since its organization.
The Small family is of eastern origin and for generations its members contributed to the well being of the state
of Maine, four generations at least claiming that New England state as their birthplace. (For a complete history
of the famliy the reader is referred to the sketch of Henry K. Small, which appears elsewhere in this volume.)
Charles L. Small was born in Aroostook county, Me., December 1, 1874, the son of Henry K. and Emma Maria (Carr)
Small. During his boyhood the family home was transferred from the far east to the extreme west, settlement being
made in Orange county, Cal., where he continued his studies in the public schools until the year 1892. Subsequently
he assisted his father on the home ranch near Riverside, and still later, in 1902, joined his father in the establishment
of the fuel and feed business which for more than a decade has been successfully conducted under the name of H.
K. Small & Sons.
The marriage of Charles L. Small and Miss Inez Loveland of Riverside, occurred June 10, 1904, and four children
were born to them. As an enterprising and honorable citizen Mr. Small enjoys the high regard of friends and associates
who predict for him a most encouraging future. He is a member of Riverside Lodge No. 282, I. O. O. F., and is
a stanch Republican, thoroughly optimistic concerning the welfare of his party.
