JAMES R. ELDRIDGE, chief of the fire prevention department of the Endicott Johnson Corporation, manufacturers
of Johnson City, New York, was born September 12, 1866, in Brooklyn, Pennsylvania, son of Charles C. and Mary Eldridge.
Mr. Eldridge was educated in the public schools of his home town and had been identified with work similar to his
present occupation during his business career. He is possessed of a strong mentality and invincible courage and
these qualities, combined with a strong individuality, make him particularly well fitted for his position. For
nineteen years Mr. Eldridge was a member of the New York State National Guard. The success which he has attained
can well be attributed to his natural ability and his sincere desire to be of service.
Mr. Eldridge identifies himself with every worthy movement in Johnson City in the line of public improvement, and
he enjoys the reputation of being an honorable and useful citizen. Polititally he holds liberal views, and fraternally
is a member of the Masonic order, including the chapter, and of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. He is a regular
and consistent member of the Methodist church.
James R. Eldridge married, May 20, 1902, Ruth D. C. Hill, daughter of Andrew and Emily Hill, and they are the parents
of two daughters and a son: Margaret, Madelin and Robert.
