      Charles E. Canfield, Chairman Of Family Paper Concern, Dies

      May 9. 1973

      https://www.nytimes.com/1973/05/09/archives/charles-e-canfield-chairman-of-family-paper-concern-dies.html

      ARLINGTON, Vt., May 8--Charles E. Canfield, board chairman of the Canfield Paper Company of New York, died Sunday at Putnam Memorial Hospital, Bennington. He was 72 years old and had lived here since his retirement in 1963.

      Mr. Canfield, who had represented New York paper merchants in negotiations with labor unions, was president of the Paper Merchants Association of New York in 1951?52.

      He rose through the ranks in the family concern, which was established by his grandfather, James A Canfield, and Carl A. Newfang in New York in 1906. He joined the company in 1923, a year after he graduated from Dartmouth College, and became a salesman and then manager of the Philadelphia office.

      Between 1942 and 1946, Mr. Canfield served in Washington as a nonsalaried civilian on loan to the War Procurement Board, controlling the procurement and allocation of printing papers.

      In 1946 he succeeded Mr. Newfang, who was retiring, as president of Canfield and held that post until 1963, when he became chairman.

      His aunt was the popular novelist, Dorothy Canfield Fisher.

      Mr. Canfield leaves his wife, Dorothy; a son, James; two daughters, Mrs. Molly Falk and Mrs. Nancy Dominie, and a brother, Robert E. Canfield.
