Denis Francis Howe, secretary of the Utica Chamber of Commerce, is a native of this city, born November 9, 1869,
a son of Denis Francis and Elizabeth (Cogley) Howe. He received his early education in the Assumption Academy,
of Utica and upon leaving school entered the office of the Saturday Globe as artist and writer. He continued with
this paper for twenty years, passing through every department and becoming thoroughly acquainted with newspaper
work. He gained an enviable reputation as a writer and his contact with business men gave him a knowledge of business
affairs much beyond that possessed by the ordinary individual. Since July, 1910, he has most acceptably filled
the office of secretary of the chamber of commerce.
On April 28, 1908, Mr. Howe was united in marriage to Miss Mary Benedict O'Reilly of this city. By virtue of his
services in the war between the United States and Spain he is a member of the United Spanish War Veterans. A man
of pleasing social characteristics and sound practical training, he is remarkably well informed concerning the
industrial and commercial resources of Utica and central New York and is proving one of the most wide awake, efficient
and progressive secretaries the chamber of commerce has known.
