About Charles J Bintliff

CHARLES J BINTLIFF. BINTLIFF, Charles J., was born in Ashland, Minnesota, on May 25, 1861. He attended school at Ashland until he was twelve years old when he moved with his parents to Minneapolis where he continued his schooling and began his busi- ness life by selling newspapers after school hours. When he left school he secured work at the Ninety-nine Cent Store at three dollars per week. After several years he left this position to become book-keeper for Zesbaugh Bros., and about five years later bought out the half in- terest of one of the brothers. This was the beginning of his career as a manufacturer of mouldings and picture frames. The firm was then known as Zesbaugh & Bintliff. In 1888 the firm of Zesbaugh & Bintliff was succeeded by the Bintliff Manufacturing Company, of which Mr. Bintliff is now president. Through his ef- forts the company has been built up from a small concern to one of the largest of its kind in the Northwest. In 1902 he was elected a member of the board of education for the term of six years and in 1906 was elected president of the board. About the same time he was also elected one of the directors of the Commercial Club. He is and has always been a staunch sup- porter of the republican party. Mr. Bintliff was a member of the Centenary Church, Wesley Church, and is at present a member of the Eowler M. E. Church. In 1887 he was married to Miss May C. Kinsey. They have one son twenty years of age, who is attending the Uni- versity of Minnesota. Mr. Bintliff’s father, Gershom Bintliff, was born in Salterebble, York- shire county, England, on September 22, 1830, and came to America in 1840. He is secretary of the Bintliff Manufacturing Company at the present time. From the book "A Half Century of Minneapolis" page 408 online at
