There are always certain establishments which set the standard for business in their particular field and the
men who are in control of them are always those whose industry, enterprise and ambition lead them beyond the point
of mediocrity into a field where strenuous effort is required but where the rewards are large and satisfactory.
Through almost his entire life Daniel J. Sullivan has been a resident of Utica and has won for himself the
enviable position which he now occupies as senior partner of the Sullivan-Slauson Company, Incorporated, which
owns and controls "The Busy Corner," which is the leading drug store between New York city and Buffalo.
He was born in Watkins, Schuyler county, New York, January 13, 1876, his parents being Eugene and Margaret Sullivan,
the former a mason, who followed his trade for many years.
Daniel J. Sullivan was only about three years of age when the family came to Utica and in the public schools here
he mastered the common branches of learning, while later he attended the New York College of Pharmacy, from which
he was graduated with the class of 1897. He then returned to Utica and entered the employ of John H. Sheehan &
Company, thus putting to a practical test the theoretical knowledge which he had acquired in college. He remained
in that service until he formed a partnership with J. G. Slauson and established the present business which has
been incorporated under the name of the Sullivan-Slauson Company. The success of the undertaking was assured from
the beginning because of the previous experience, the indefatigable energy and determined purpose of the proprietors.
He bent every energy to the upbuilding of the trade and has made the Busy Corner exactly what its name implies
and the foremost establishment of this character between New York city and Buffalo. Mr Sullivan, who naturally
takes a lively interest in the welfare and progress of the city, is a member of the Utica Chamber of Commerce,
in which institution he is always in the front rank with those embracing every opportunity to promote Utica's sphere
of commercial influence and activities.
Mr Sullivan was married November 30, 1905, to Miss Jane L Murphy, a daughter of John P. and Ellen T. Murphy, of
Utica, and they now have one child, Natalie Jane. Mr. Sullivan's fraternal interests connect him with the Knights
of Columbus, the Royal Arcanum and the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks. He is a progressive young business
man of untiring, dynamic energy, continually seeking out new methods for the enlargement and expansion of his trade
relations, at the same time conforming his efforts to the strictest standard of commercial ethics.
