Stiles, Edmund S., treasurer and general manager of the Stiles & Fladd Press Company, of Watertown, a firm that was established and incorporated in November, 1895, and is one of the largest of the kind in Northern New York devoted exclusively to the manufacture of presses, dies, drop hammers and special machinery. Mr. Stiles was born in Meriden, Conn., March 12, 1867, and educated in private schools, the Middleton High School and preparatory college at Wilbraham, Mass. His first business experience was with his father, who was engaged in the manufacturing business at Middletown, Conn, he becoming secretary and superintendent of the works in 1885. In 1891 he removed to Brooklyn to accept a position with the E. W. Bliss Company, where he remained until 1895, and then came to Watertown to to take charge of the affairs of the Stiles & Fladd Press Company, which was organized at that time and where he has since resided. November 23, 1893, he married Monterey W. Randall of Eastern Shore, Md., and they have two children, Norman C., three years of age, and Sarah M., one year old. Socially Mr. Stiles enjoys the good will of a large circle and the warmest friendship of those who know him intimately and are familiar with those high qualities of mind and heart which are so seldom called into exercise in the ordinary transactions of business life.
