Biography of Herbert S. Janes


Janes, Herbert S., Buffalo, junior member of the well known manufacturing firm of Pittman & Janes, has for some time been prominent among the younger generation of successful business men in Buffalo, and the fact that to-day he occupies a position in the front ranks of Buffalo manufacturers, is sufficient proof that he is possessed of rare sagacity in business matters. Mr. Janes is a native of New York and was born at Le Roy, in that State, August 22, 1869. He was educated in the public schools at Le Roy and Havana and afterward took a full course at Bryant & Stratton's Business College. After finishing his business course he entered the service of a lumber firm at Tonawanda, N. Y., where he remained for two years. He then removed to Tennessee and became superintendent of a saw mill, where he remained for a few years, when heremoved to Buffalo and accepted a position with the Empire Lumber Company as buyer. After three years in this capacity he determined to engage in business on his own account, and in company with Mr. Pittman organized the now well known firm of Pittman & Janes, manufacturers of hard wood for furniture. He was married at Buffalo, N.Y., on October 17. 1894, to Jessie L. Mason.
