HISTORY OF THE CORNWALL CHEESE AND BUTTER BOARD
 
CHARLES A. WILKINS
cHARLES A. WILKINS is forty-nine years of age and is perhaps one of the best-known cheese manufacturers on the Cornwall Cheese Board. Starting some thirty-two years ago when dairying was in its infancy, Mr. Wilkins has progressed with the times. He has been manager of many factories in Glengarry and Stormont and was a protégé of the late D. M. McPherson, the Cheese King of Canada. Tyotown and Glen Walter were two of the factories where Mr. Wilkins served as proprietor and manufacturer. Mr. Wilkins has been a consistent winner of prizes for superior cheese-making at many of the big exhibitions throughout the country, notable among these being the Chicago World's Fair and the Toronto and Ottawa Fairs. His latest achievement was the winning of the Silver trophy at the Perth mid-winter fair, 1918, where the contestants numbered over two hundred.
       Mr. Wilkins' father's name was George Wilkins, and his mother was Margaret Maloney. His wife's maiden name was Charlotte McRoberts and he is the father of three sons and one daughter. He is a Protestant in religion and a Unionist in politics.
