Charles Sill Palmer

Charles Sill Palmer, 60, son of Charles M. Palmer, nationally known newspaper broker and publisher, died at his home at Saranac Lake on Sunday morning following an acute illness of five days.

Mr. Palmer, who was born in Minneapolis, Minn., came to Saranac Lake with his brother, the late Dean Palmer, in 1906. He married Dorothy Kingsbury Fischer.

Mr. Palmer's health was never rugged after his first breakdown, but his condition was made worse by overwork during World War I, when he undertook construction of flying boats for the government. In recent years his activities were limited to business affairs at Saranac Lake, although he spent much of his time in the rest treatment.

He was a director of the St. Joseph, Mo., News Cor., owners of the St. Joseph Mo., Morning-Gazette, and the News Press, evening paper. He was also a director and large stockholder in the radio station KFEQ in St. Joseph, Mo.

Mr. Palmer was a member of the St. Joseph Men's club, the Saranac Lake Elks club and the Saranac Lake library board. His body was taken to Troy for cremation and the ashes will be buried in St. John's of the Wilderness cemetery, Paul Smiths.
