CHESTER B. LORD - The entire business life of Chester B. Lord has been spent in connection with the shoe business, as clerk, salesman, partner and officer, he now being vice president of the Endicott Johnson Corporation of Endicott, Broome county, New York. He is a son of William H. and Mary A. (Endicott) Lord, both deceased. William H. Lord was in the wholesale fish business, and during the Civil War, 1861-65, was in the Union army, serving as first sergeant of the 44th Regiment, Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry.

Chester B. Lord was born in Dedham, Massachusetts, December 5, 1875, and there completed public school study with high school courses. In 1892, at the age of sixteen, he became clerk and later a salesman for different shoe manufacturers of Boston, Massachusetts. In 1901 he was employed by the Lestershire Manufacturing Company, as a salesman, that company later becoming the co-partnership, Endicott, Johnson & Company, Mr. Lord being one of seven partners. Later the business was incorporated as the Endicott Johnson Corporation, Chester B. Lord now holding the office of vice president, in charge of all selling departments of the company. He is thoroughly familiar with every detail of the shoe business from the selling viewpoint, his whole business experience having been along that line. His executive quality has also been tested and proved adequate to the demands of high position. He is a director of the Endicott Johnson Corporation, and of the State Bank of Endicott.

During the World War period, 1917-18, Mr. Lord was one of Endicott's "four minute" speakers, and rendered valuable aid in the Liberty Loan, Red Cross, and other "drives" and activities of that strenuous time. He is an Independent in politics; attends the Presbyterian church; is president of the Endicott Free Library; president of the Binghamton Country Club; and popular with his associates and highly esteemed both as business man and citizen.

Mr. Lord married, in June, 1908, at Brooklyn, New York, Amy Lester, daughter of David and Delia (Lockwood) Lester, her father a wholesale hat manufacturer of New York City. David Lester died in 1907, his widow yet surviving him (1923). Mr. and Mrs. Lord are the parents of a son, Chester B. Lord, Jr., born August 22, 1910.
