Baird, John S., was born at Waterloo, N. Y., September 8. 1865, and after receiving his schooling entered the jewelry store of John R. Montague, at Waterloo, where he remained for three years. In 1885 he came to Watertown, and in company with W. W. Scott, established a jewelry business, to which he succeeded as sole proprietor in 1890. He is a practical and skilled jeweler and optician, and by hard work and honorable dealings has acquired a large and influential patronage. His place of business at No. 4 Paddock Block, which he has occupied since 1890, is centrally located, comprising a fine store (and basement) 25 by 75 feet in dimensions, in which is built a modern vault, guarded by the famous Yale time lock. Mr. Baird does not confine his operations alone to Watertown, but does business in all parts of the United States, issuing for this purpose a beautiful 100 paged catalogue, embellished with fine engravings, representing over 4,000 different articles. He also carries a full and complete assortment of optical goods and scientific appliances for testing purposes. A leading specialty of the establishment is diamond setting, fine and complicated watches, jewelry, etc. Energy, keen business acumen, and methods governed by integrity and fairness have been the elements underlying his success. In his career as a business man and citizen his record is untarnished and he merits the success he has won.
