Dr. Charles Telsey has concentrated his attention upon the practice of medicine and surgery in Utica for about a decade and has gained a merited reputation as one of the skilled young representatives of the profession here. A native of Russia, he was born on the 22d of July, 1891, and was a lad of nine years when in 1900 he accompanied his parents on their emigration to the United States, the family home being established in Brooklyn, New York. There he pursued a grammar and high school course and then entered upon preparation for a professional career as a student in the Long Island College Hospital, from which he was graduated with the degree of M. D. in 1914. The same year he came to Utica and after spending eighteen months as an interne in the General Hospital he opened an office for the private practice of medicine here. While a young man, he has already made substantial progress in his chosen field of labor and step by step is advancing as the result of the development of his powers, his broadening experience and his close study. He is on the staff of St. Luke's Hospital of Utica.

On the 6th of October, 1918, Dr. Telsey was united in marriage to Miss Florence Seideman of Brooklyn, New York, and they have become the parents of two children: Howard Joel, who was born August 6, 1922; and Muriel Doris, whose natal day was December 6, 1923.

Dr. Telsey maintains an independent attitude in politics, not feeling himself bound by party ties. Fraternally he is identified with Jonathan Lodge of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. His activity and interest, however, center in his profession and to the end of further advancement along his chosen line he has become a member of the Oneida County Medical Society and the New York State Medical Society.
