Biography of George C. Bingham


Bingham, George C., vice-president and treasurer of the Crocker Fertilizer and Chemical Company, Buffalo, is a remarkable example of the rapidity with which young men, by their own unaided efforts, can rise to positions of great trust and responsibility. His early days were spent on his father's farm in Vermont, and his education was confined to a district school and a neighboring academy. After teaching school successfully in his own State and in Iowa, and reading law between whiles, he finally settled in Buffalo in 1882, obtaining a position as bookkeeper with the Crocker Fertilizer and Chemical Company. After a few years of faithful service he was promoted to the secretaryship, and has recently been elected to the office he now holds. He is the son of Benjamin F. and Maria Smedley Bingham, and was born in January, 1859. In September, 1887, he married Julia, daughter of Oscar Cobb of Buffalo.
