Edwin Francis Platler, a Utica accountant and auditor of expert ability, is numbered among the city's native sons, his birth having occurred on the 23d of October, 1895. His parents, George J. and Laura (Hoch) Platler, are also natives of the Mohawk valley and the family is well known and highly esteemed in the community. After completing a course of study in the Assumption Academy of Utica, Edwin F. Platler became an employe of A. B. Raser, now retired, who was awarded the contract for building the new station of the New York Central Railroad in Utica. Subsequently he spent one year as a student in the Utica Business Institute, of which he is a graduate. During the period of the World war he served the government in the capacity of bookkeeper until honorably discharged. He then embarked in business for himself as an expert accountant of Utica, in which connection he has been accorded an extensive clientele in recognition of his efficiency in this field of work. An auditor of pronounced ability, his services along this line are also in constant demand. Though young in years, he has had considerable experience in accounting and auditing and he enjoys the confidence of many of Utica's prominent financiers and business men.

Mr. Platler was married to Miss Mary Daly, a native of Utica and a daughter of Michael and Emily Daly of this city. Mr. and Mrs. Platler have two children: Frances and Mary Alice. Mr. Platler is a member of the Democratic Club and fraternally is identified with the Knights of Columbus and the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks. He is accorded the respect and esteem of all who know him, and both he and his wife have a large circle of friends in the city which has always been their home.
