CHARLES HORACE DOOLITTLE
Among the prominent and progressive mining engineers who have won fame and distinction for themselves in the inter-mountain, country and elsewhere is Charles H. Doolittle, who is the able manager of the Bingham-New Haven mining interests in Utah. Mr. Doolittle is descended from an old New York family, and was born at Wappinger Falls, New York, December 4, 1861.

He is the son of Dr. Frank W Doolittle and Mary C. Doolittle. He received his early education in the schools of his native place, and subsequently attended Columbia University of New York City, from winch he graduated in 1885 with the degree of mining engineer, and that profession he has followed ever since.

Mr. Doolittle is an expert chemist, assayer, and surveyor, and for the past quarter of a century has been permanently connected with the mining and smelting business, and has operated all the wady from British Columbia to Old Mexico, spending several years in the latter country following his profession. During that period he has developed and surveyed many very valuable mining properties. He was formerly one of the superintendents of the American Smelting and Refining Company, and is thoroughly qualified in the practical side of the mining industry. Mr. Doolittle has been a resident of Salt Lake City since 1903, and has represented several important mining companies during that period.

Mr. Doolittle is married, and is the father of two children; one deceased, Frank W., and once living, Dorothy C. Doolittle. He is a member of the Alta Club and also of the Country Club of Salt Lake. Mr. Doolittle is a man who, by his natural versatility and his extensive knowledge of mining, is especially fitted for a successful operator and promoter. He is of excellent executive ability and keen perception, and these qualities have given him a remarkable reputation in mining circles throughout the inter-mountain country. He resides at 366 East South Temple Street, Salt Lake City.
