Harland F. Guillaume, who has conducted the Depot Dining Rooms in Utica as president and treasurer of Guillaume & Company, Incorporated, since 1921, was for eighteen years prior to that time successfully engaged in the practice of dentistry in the city. His birth occurred in Utica, New York, on the 21st of December, 1878, his parents being Frederick L. and Hattie S. Guillaume. The father, who passed away in Utica in 1918, is still survived by the mother, who yet makes her home in this city. Frederick L. Guillaume had conducted the depot restaurant in Utica for thirty years when in 1914 he organized Guillaume & Company, Incorporated. At his death four years later the enterprise was continued by J. G. Tritten, who has been vice president and secretary of the company since H. F. Guillaume became its head in 1921.

In the acquirement of an education Harland F. Guillaume attended the public school and academy in Utica, while his professional training was received in the dental department of the University of Buffalo, from which he was graduated with the degree of D. D. S. in 1903. During the succeeding eighteen years he followed the profession of dentistry in Utica, being accorded a practice of large and lucrative proportions in recognition of his skill and ability in this field. In 1921, however, he sold his practice to assume the duties of president and treasurer of Guillaume & Company, Incorporated, and has since conducted the Depot Dining Rooms with marked success. He is also a director in the Signal Accessories Corporation of Utica.

On the 18th of September, 1907, Dr. Guillaume was united in marriage to Miss Florence M. Byington, daughter of Charles Abram and Harriet L. (Martin) Byington, the latter still a resident of Utica. The Doctor and his wife have two children: Harriet Byington, whose natal day was January 18, 1909; and Betty, who was born October 24, 1915. Fraternally Dr. Guillaume is identified with Utica Lodge No. 47, F. & A. M., of Utica, and with Utica Lodge No. 33, B. P. O. E., of Utica, while along strictly professional lines he has membership connection with the Fifth District Dental Society, the New York State Dental Association and the National Dental Association. He takes the interest of a good citizen in public affairs, supporting all projects which he believes will prove of benefit to his community, and stands deservedly high in the esteem of his fellowmen in Utica, of which city he has been a lifelong resident.
