Charles T. Bartlett is a partner of Robert J. Hudson in the Utica Tile & Marble Company, which he organized in 1913 and which has since become the largest enterprise of the kind in Utica. He was born in Richmond, Vermont, on the 29th of July, 1884, his parents being John C. and Anna Bartlett of that city. The father, a practical tilesetter, is now associated in business with his son.

Charles T. Bartlett pursued his education in the grade and high schools of Springfield, Massachusetts, and after putting aside his textbooks learned the trade of tilesetting in Springfield and in Boston. He was a young man of twenty-five years when in 1909 he came to Utica and entered the employ of the William G. Edwards Mantle & Tile Company of this city as a mechanic, thus continuing until 1913. In the latter year he organized the Utica Tile & Marble Company and took into partnership Robert J. Hudson, also a practical tilesetter. The concern was established on a small scale but has steadily developed under the capable direction of Mr. Bartlett and his associate until it is now the most extensive of the kind in Utica and has been awarded many large and important contracts. The offices and display room of the company are situated at No. 20 Elizabeth street. Mr. Bartlett's success is attributable to his thorough understanding of the practical phases of his work, as well as of the details of business management, and he is well entitled to a place of leadership in his chosen line of activity. Before coming to Utica he was appointed by Governor Hughes as chief of the stone and tile division for the state of New York at Albany, a position which he filled for five years.

On the 24th of November, 1901, Mr. Bartlett was united in marriage to Miss Louise Lundquist, daughter of Charles Lundquist of Providence, Rhode Island. Mr. and Mrs. Bartlett have five children: Charles Joseph, Lillian, Harold, Helen and Robert. Mr. Bartlett belongs to the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks and enjoys an extensive and favorable acquaintance in both social and business circles of his adopted city.
