Charles Warren Little, attorney and counsellor at law, with offices at No. 131 West Main street, is one of the younger generation of Johnstown's native sons who is making good in his chosen profession. He is the son of Charles G. and Mary C. (Dorn) Little and was born in the town of Johnstown, just west of this city, on the 31st of July, 1899. His parents are both natives of the Empire state, the mother claiming Morristown, St. Lawrence county, as her birthplace and the father, Schoharie county. Charles G. Little came to Fulton county when he was a lad of thirteen and has made this vicinity his home ever since. He is the owner and proprietor of a fine dairy farm of one hundred and twenty-five acres known as Elm Crest Farm, lying about a mile and a half west of the city, and is one of the foremost agriculturists of this region. Always more or less active in local politics, he served the town of Johnstown as town clerk for four years and was only recently appointed a justice of the peace. As a boy, Charles Warren Little lived on his father's farm and attended district school, No. 6, of the town of Johnstown. He is a graduate of the Johnstown high school, class of 1915, and an alumnus of Cornell University, where he obtained the LL. B. degree in June, 1921. Mr. Little enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences in Cornell in 1916 and after two years of general work transferred to the College of Law, where he prepared to enter the legal profession. After graduating from college he gained some practical experience in the law offices of Judge Frank Talbot of Gloversville and former District Attorney J. William Titcomb, as a clerk. He was admitted to the bar at Albany on July 6, 1922, and began to practice in Syracuse, where he spent two years. On the 1st of January, 1924, Mr. Little opened his office in Johnstown for the general practice of law and in a short time has worked up a good clientele. This young lawyer is thoroughly prepared for the serious work he has undertaken and by his scrupulous regard for the ethics of the profession and conscientious efforts to aid his patrons he has won the confidence of the general public and the esteem of his colleagues before the bar. Indeed, he may confidently look forward to a long career in his profession and one that is full of brilliant achievement.

Mr. Little is not married. He has been active in the social and fraternal life of the community as a member of Johnstown Lodge No. 808, I. O. O. F.; Sir William Johnson Lodge, No. 136, Knights of Pythias; the Colonial Club; and Kolaneka Grange, No. 1441. He is also an Elk, his affiliations in that order being with Syracuse Lodge, No. 31. His religious faith is indicated by his membership in the Lutheran church, while politically he supports the republican party. In connection with his profession Mr. Little holds membership in the Fulton County Bar Association.
