Biography of Charles A. Pooley


Pooley, Charles A., Buffalo, son of William and Mary A. Pooley, was born November 17 1854, in Buffalo, N. Y., where he has always resided. He attended the public schools, graduating from the Central High School in the class of 1873, and then entered the lumber business, in which he continued three years. Not finding this employment strictly congenial, and being ambitious to adopt a profession, he began the study of law on January 1, 1876. Devoting himself diligently to Blackstone and Kent, he was admitted to the full privileges of the bar in April, 1879. He began at once the active practice of law in connection with the firm of Lansing, McMiilan & Gluck, having completed his studies in the office of the late Senator A. P. Laning, and has continued with that firm through its various changes-Green, McMillan & Gluck, McMillan, Gluck & Pooley, and McMillan, Gluck, Pooley & Depew-to the present time. Mr. Pooley was a trustee of the Buffalo Library for three years, and is a prominent 32° Mason, being a member and past master of De Molay Lodge No. 498, F. & A. M., and a member of Buffalo Chapter, R. A. M. He was district deputy grand master of Masons in 1894. June 4, 1884, he was married to Carrie Adams, daughter of the late Hon. S. Carey Adams, of Buffalo.
