Biography of James W. Johnston
Erie County, NY Biographies


Johnston, James W., Buffalo, a native of England, was born September 24, 1866, and came to this country when he was but two years of age, his parents settling in Buffalo. After acquiring a liberal education from the public schools he embarked in the painting business with his father and continued with him until 1894, and since that time he has conducted the business alone. It is scarcely necessary to enlarge upon the taste and skill that have always distinguished Mr. Johnston, the innumerable examples of both found in the private residences, public buildings, vessels, etc., sufficiently attest these merits, while the volume of his business proves the hold he has upon the confidence and patronage of the property owner and building public. He employs from thirty to fifty painters and artists dependent upon the season and does an annual business of $20,000 to $25,000.
