T. Francis Fletcher is the proprietor of a well appointed and modern drug store at No. 255 Genesee street in Utica, where he is widely known as an enterprising and reliable young business man and skilled pharmacist. Utica numbers him among her native sons, and he was born on the 13th of August, 1893, his parents being Thomas A. and Margaret A. Fletcher of this city. His father has been probation officer for the past twenty years.

T. Francis Fletcher pursued his studies in the Utica Free Academy and afterward entered Columbia University, from which he was graduated with the degree of Ph. G. in 1914. The same year he entered a drug store as a registered pharmacist, where he remained for a decade, save for the period of his service in the World war. He entered military service in December, 1917, was called for overseas duty in March, 1918, and spent fourteen months with the Sanitary Corps in France, holding the rank of lieutenant. Following his discharge from the army, on the 30th of August, 1919, he returned to Utica and entered a drug store, where he continued until he embarked in business as a druggist on his own account in May, 1924. His long connection in the drug business stands in incontrovertible evidence of the efficiency and worth of his services. His store on Genesee street has already become widely known and is well patronized, for he carries an extensive stock of drugs and druggists' sundries and enjoys an unassailable reputation for reliability and honorable dealing.

In January, 1918, Mr. Fletcher was united in marriage to Miss Mary E. Fischer, daughter of Professor George H. Fischer of Utica. Mr. Fletcher belongs to the Knights of Columbus, the American Legion, the Lions Club and the Advertising Club, and is highly esteemed in his native city.
