Biography of Seth W. Warren


Warren, Seth W., Buffalo, was born in the town of Clarence, Erie county, N. Y., March 15, 1841. In 1863 he removed to Buffalo and entered the United States Custom House, but in June, 1864, resigned and entered the First National Bank as assistant bookkeeper, where he remained as bookkeeper, paying and receiving teller for seven years, when he was offered a position as cashier of the German Bank, which responsible position he held until 1878. At the end of this service he entered the coal department of the D., L. & W. Railroad, in the capacity of cashier, which position he held for one year. In 1880 he became assistant cashier of White's Bank and in 1886 was made its cashier. Under his administration of affairs the name of the bank was changed to that of the American Exchange Bank. He occupied this position until April 1, 1894; at this date he severed his connection with this institution and has since been engaged as a broker in real estate and investment securities. Mr. Warren is affiliated with many societies, being a Mason, a past master in the A. O. U. W., and a member of the Acacia Club. He is a man whose word is as good as his bond, and he takes pride in the thought that during a business experience of over thirty-six years he has personally never had cause to bring a legal action against his fellow man and has never been defendant in an action.
