CHARLES J. QUICK - The business man in any community who is public spirited by nature and interested in the
welfare and development of his town is a real asset to the town and to his fellow citizens. Charles S. Quick, a
leading business man of the town of Johnson City, New York, possesses these qualities which distinguish him from
his fellows and which have placed him in high estimation among them.
Mr. Quick was born in Brooklyn, Pennsylvania, December 27, 1867, son of Mark, a cabinet maker by occupation, and
Eliza Quick. His education was obtained in the public schools. Being a licensed pharmacist, he decided to locate,
in 1896, in Johnson City, and there he established a drug store which he has since conducted, and today is the
owner of one of the leading stores in that town. He is remarkably well liked among his contemporaries and takes
a keen interest in all matters both public and social.
From 1909 to 1915 he was postmaster of Johnson City, appointed to this office by ex President William Howard Taft,
and in this office, as well as in his private business affairs, he gave the best that was in him.
