About Charles Sexton James

Charles was the manager of Gump's department store in San Francisco.

13 Carol Wilson, Gump's Treasure Trade, New York: Thomas Crowell, 1965, p. 150. In an unpublished 1957 essay, Charles Sexton James claimed that A.L. Gump "commissioned Sparks" to paint "thirty-two missions in sizes that would go together as a set." All of the paintings were sixteen vertical inches and between twenty to twenty-six horizontal inches. James noted that Sparks painted a second set for Albert George Haskell that depicted similar views, but which were generally smaller and irregular in size. Charles Sexton James, "Will Sparks, 1862­1937: Illustrator, Engraver, Painter," 1957. Photocopy, Will Sparks File, Edan Milton Hughes Collection, San Francisco. http://www.tfaoi.com/aa/8aa/8aa436.htm

He is listed as a department store manager in the 1930 census.
