Among the highly esteemed citizens of Utica is Frederick Towne Proctor who for a number of years past
has been well known in financial circles. He is a native of Cambridge, Massachusetts, born June 7, 1856, a son
of Moody S. and Maria (Towne) Proctor. He received his education in Boston, Massachusetts, and Manchester, New
Hampshire, and as a poor boy began his battle with the world. By courage, industry, perseverance and an undaunted
determination to win for himself an honorable position, he overcame all obstacles and is now enjoying the results
of many years of well directed application. In addition to other interests he is a member of the board of directors
of the Second National Bank of Utica.
On December 1, 1894, Mr. Proctor was united in marriage at Utica to Miss Rachel M. Williams, a daughter of James
W. and Helen E. (Munson) Williams, of this city. Mr. and Mrs. Proctor are valued members of Grace Episcopal church
and socially he is identified with the Fort Schuyler Club, the Sadaquada and Yahnundahsis Golf Clubs of Utica and
the Metropolitan Club of New York city. In politics he adheres to the republican party, believing that its principles
are in accord with the best interests of the entire country. Having early been obliged to face many difficulties,
he is in hearty sympathy with young men who are struggling against adversity and is ever willing to extend a helping
hand to one less fortunate than himself. A man of clear discrimination and sound judgment in business, his advice
is often sought by investors and when followed it is seldom indeed found to have been amiss. As a wide awake citizen
he keeps thoroughly informed upon all the important questions and issues of the day, but he is of a retiring disposition
and has never sought publicity, preferring to concentrate his energies upon his private business affairs.
