Biography of Charles H. Webster


Webster, Charles H., Buffalo, was born in New York city, July 7, 1852, and in 1855 removed to Buffalo with his parents, where he received his education. His first business experience was as a cash clerk in the dry goods establishment of Flint & Kent, where he remained for two years. In 1867 he entered the employ of the L. S. & M. S. Railroad as a clerk in the freight office at Buffalo, where he remained for four years, after which he was employed in the office of W. H. Glenny for about four years when he was offered a position in the Farmers' and Mechanics' Bank as bookkeeper, remaining with them until 1878. At the end of this service he accepted a position as bookkeeper for the live stock commission firm of M. B. Doty & Co., at East Buffalo, remaining with the firm until 1880, when he succeeded Mr. King as agent for the New York State Associated Press and live stock reporter for the daily papers. In 1882 he was employed by Swope & Hughes, commission merchants at the East Buffalo stock yards, where he remained for six years, when he became connected with his brother, who was superintending the publication of the Farmers' Journal and the Daily Transcript, which were merged into the Daily Mercantile Review, in which they were jointly interested. He severed his connection with the live stock commission firm named, and has since devoted his entire time to the above named publications.
