William C. Cahill, accountant and organizer of the Cahill Duclos Company, Incorporated, the only firm of its kind in the Empire state, was born in Utica, New York, on August 28, 1886, the eldest of three sons born to Richard W. and Etta (Cowan) Cahill. His parents were both born in Utica and now reside in that city, where his father was engaged in the bottling business until he retired from active work.

William C. Cahill was educated in the public schools of Utica and at the Albany Business College in Albany, New York, after which he became identified with the Bossort Company in 1905 as clerk, and when he resigned three years later he was assistant manager. The following two years, from 1908 to 1910, he was out of business, owing to ill health. Subsequently he engaged in public accounting work for two years, after which he became associated with the Library Bureau of New Jersey as office manager and chief accountant and occupied this responsible position until 1921, when he returned to the public accounting field. In 1923 Mr. Cahill formed the firm of Cahill Duclos Company, Incorporated, Financial, Engineering and Architectural Counsel, the only firm of its kind in the state.

In Utica, New York, on September 15, 1920, Mr. Cahill was united in marriage to Miss Harriet K. Bloodgood, and they have one child, Jean Louise Cahill. Mr. Cahill is a member of the City Club of Utica, Mohawk Valley Engineers, the American Society Mechanical Engineers and of the Republican Club. He is also a member of the Knights of Columbus and his church associations are in St. John's Catholic church of Utica. In politics he is a stanch republican. Golf is his favorite diversion and he is secretary-treasurer of the Utica Golf and Country Club. It may be said of Mr. Cahill that he has turned his advantages to most excellent account and is known as a public-spirited citizen.
