    Biography
    • HARRY W. CHAMBERLIN, of Milton, Northumberland county, president of the Milton National Bank, lawyer and present borough solicitor, is a member of the third generation of his family to reside in that place and most worthily bears a name which in every generation within memory has had notable representatives. In both his professional association and his relation to the bank he is practically the successor of his grandfather, W. C. Lawson, with whom he studied law and who was president of the Milton National Bank for many years from its organization. Thus, though he had many advantages of position and education, instead of the usual difficulties which confront the young man who cares to make a name for himself, he had to take up the burden of maintaining a standard already set. That he has proved himself able to do that and more his standing in professional and financial circles in Milton today, which is second to none, clearly shows.

      Mr. Chamberlin was born Aug. 29, 1872, in Milton, son of William B. Chamberlin. His grandfather, Moses Chamberlin, was born in Union county, Pa., and his great-grandfather, William Chamberlin, was a native of New Jersey, born Sept. 25, 1736, in Hunterdon county.

      Harry W. Chamberlin attended the public schools of Milton, graduating in 1887, after which he became a student at Lafayette College, from which institution he was graduated in 1892. He read law with his maternal grandfather and was admitted to the Bar of Northumberland county in 1895, since which time he has been continuously engaged in legal practice, occupying the same office which his grandfather had. His patronage
      has been steady and lucrative from the beginning, and the able manner in which he handles legal work has drawn a high class of such business to him. His inherited and developed talent for the profession, and his accomplishments in special eases,  entitle him to a place among the most skillful lawyers of his day in his section.

      On Oct. 29, 1903, Mr. Chamberlin married Miriam A. Bucher, daughter of ex-Judge Joseph C. Bucher, of Lewisburg. UnionCo,. Pa., and his wife, Mary (Walls), daughter of Judge Walls. Mrs. Chamberlin's grandfather was Rev. Joseph C. -Bucher, D.D., a well known clergyman of the Reformed Church.

      Mr.Chamberlin is a High Mason, holding membership in Milton Lodge, No. 256. F.& A. M.; Warrior Run Chapter, No. 246, R. & A. M., of Watsontown. Pa.; Mt. Hermon Commandery, No. 85, K.T., of Sunbury; Williamsport Consistory, A.A.S.R. and Irem Temple, A. A. O. N. M. S., of Wilkes-Barre. He is also a member of the Zeta Psi fraternity. and an active member of the Presbyterian church. In political preference he is a Republican.
