Myron F. Westover has been secretary of the General Electric Company of Schenectady for the past three decades. He was born in Vinton, Iowa, July 10, 1860, a son of William and Sarah (Covert) Westover. After three years in the university classical course, he entered the law department of the State University of Iowa, which in 1882 conferred upon him the degree of LL. B. Admitted to the Iowa bar in the same year, he practiced at Britt, that state, until 1883, and next at Dakota City, Iowa, until 1884. It was in 1888 that he became secretary to the president of the Thomson-Houston Electric Company in Boston, continuing in that capacity until 1894, when he assumed the important duties of his present position as secretary of the General Electric Company of Schenectady, New York. His service as an executive officer of this large corporation has been of a highly efficient character and he has long enjoyed an enviable reputation among the leading and representative business men of his adopted city.

On the 4th of November, 1886, Mr. Westover was united in marriage to Miss Lou E. Ham of Iowa City, Iowa. He gives his political support to the republican party and has membership connection with the Schenectady Board of Trade and the Schenectady County Historical Society. He also belongs to the Phi Gamma Delta Greek letter fraternity, while his clubs are the Mohawk, the Mohawk Golf and the Camp Fire of America.
