Armitage Fred E.
1864 1942 clipping from an Ellery scrapbook dated Oct. 7, 1942.
Fred E. Armitage, 78, veteran jeweler and for many years an outstanding figure in aquatics on Chautauqua Lake, died at his home, 119 Lakeview Avenue, Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. He is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Catherine Midlam and Mrs. William H. Lausterer of this city; four grandchildren, Mary Cate Midlam and William J., Martha and Julia Ann Lausterer, all of this city, the latter attending Kendall Hall School at Peterboro, N.H., and a brother, John Armitage of Jamestown. He was a brother of the late Walter Armitage at one time connected with the Journal Printing Company, and the late Charles F. Armitage, long associated with the late George A. Chatfield in the plumbing business.
Mr. Armitage was born and spent his entire lifetime here. As a young man he learned the jeweler's trade from the late Levant L. Mason and for several years was associated in the business with Lincoln Phillips on East Third Street under the firm name of Phillips & Armitage. Later he went into business for himself and for the past 52 years had been located in the same store on Pine Street. He was a member of Mt. Moriah Lodge, No. 145, Free and Accepted Masons; a charter member of the Sportsmen's Club, and active in the affairs of the former Chadakoin Boat Club when its clubhouse was located at Greenhurst some 40 years ago.Possessing rare mechanical ability, Mr. Armitage put it to excellent use in his profession and was early recognized as a leader in this particular line. His interest in aquatics on the lake made of him an outstanding figure in both rowing and sailing during the period when both were at the height of their popularity in this region and to him much credit was due for the development of the regattas which brought many thousands of visitors to the lake. He rowed as a member of the Chadakoin four-bared crew in its annual races against Chautauqua college oarsmen, was an active participant in sailing races as well, and, not only that, but was for a time engaged in the manufacture of sailboats and power launches at Celoron, turning out some of the earliest of the latter craft in this part of the country. In those days he was a close associate of Dr. Willis R. Whitney, founder and director of the research laboratory of the General Electric company at Schenectady, N. Y., both deeply interested in summer activities on the lake. Funeral services will be held at the home Thursday at 3 p.m., with interment in Lakeview Cemetery.
