CHARLES H. MILLER.
Though a native of the old Buckeye state, Charles H. Miller, an experienced lumberman and manager of the operations
of the Perry Lumber Company of Vallejo, has been a resident of California (with the exception of five years spent
in the city of Chicago) ever since he was a child and is quite content to regard this state as his permanent abiding
place. He was born in the city of Cleveland, Ohio, November 2, 1881, and was eight years of age when in 1889 his
father, Henry Miller, came to California with his family and settled in Alameda county, later taking up his residence
on a ranch in Lake county.
It was thus that Charles H. Miller was reared in California, having his schooling in Alameda county. For five years
he worked on his father's ranch in Lake county and then in 1900, when nineteen years of age, he came to Vallejo
and became employed in the plant of the Aden Lumber Company, which by merger years ago became the Perry Lumber
Company, and there became thoroughly familiar with the details of the lumber business as related to the territory
served out of Vallejo. With the exception of three years spent in operations in the city of Chicago, Mr. Miller
has thus been connected with the lumber interests of Vallejo since 1900, a period of a quarter of a century, and
is therefore thoroughly familiar with all the details of that business. In 1923 he was promoted to the position
of manager of the company whose interests he so long has served and he since has been serving in that capacity,
having done much in that time to extend the company's interests and operations here. Mr. Miller has ever taken
an interested an dhelpful part in the general social and civic activities of his home town and is a past exalted
ruler of the Vallejo lodge of the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks.
