Charles Pickard Ware (1840 – )

“Charles P. Ware was born in Cambridge, the son of Henry Ware Jr., an eminent clergyman and a professor in Harvard Divinity School.  Mr. Ware came to Brookline in 1872, later removing to Milton and 1895 built a house in Brookline, on Allerton Street.  He also had a summer home in Cataumet, where he died in his eighty-first year.  For many years he had been vice president of the Telephone Company retiring automatically when he reached the age limit.  He was a delightful companion, quiet and retiring, but of infinite good nature and humor.  His friends will ever remember his ready wit and his versatile knowledge.”
