Biography of Prof. Charles G. Parker


Parker, Prof. Charles G., Newstead, p. o. Akron, is a son of Dr. Luman P. L. Parker, who has been since 1854 one of the leading physicians of Erie county. Dr. Parker graduated from the Buffalo Medical College in 1854, and with his wife settied at once after marriage in the village of Clarence, where he soon built up a thriving practice. He remained at Clarence six years, during which time he was associated with his brother, Dr. Orlando K. Parker. In 1860 Dr. L. P. L. Parker changed his residence to Akron, which opened a wider field in professional work, and from that time until 1895 Dr. Parker was in continuous practice, and since that time has retired, owing to ill health. Prof. Parker received his early education at the Akron public schools and later took a course at the Clarence Academy. After completing his schooling he chose the vocation of teacher, and for the past sixteen years has been actively engaged in that capacity in Erie and Genesee counties. At present he is principal of the Gellsville school, a village north of Buffalo. Prof. Parker has taken a keen interest in Republican politics in his town and county and for many years has been elected to represent his town in county, assembly and senate conventions. In the fall of 1896 he was a prominent candidate for the position of school commissioner, but in the interest of harmony he stepped aside and gave it to the present incumbent. In 1894 Prof. Parker was appointed superintendent of schools at the Tonawanda Indian Reservation, which he still holds. In 1880 he married Fidelia Swift, and they have two Sons and one daughter.
