Biography[edit]

Beiter was born the son of Nicholas I and Elizabeth E Wyman Beiter in Clarence, Erie County, New York. He attended Williamsville High School and Niagara University. He married Caroline A. Kibler on November 19, 1919.[1]

Career[edit]

After a move to Williamsville, New York, Beiter engaged in the general merchandising business from 1915 to 1929. He was supervisor of the town of Amherst, New York, from 1930 to 1934.

Elected as a Democrat to the Seventy-third and the two succeeding Congresses, Beiter was U. S.

An unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1938 to the Seventy-sixth Congress, he was assistant to the United States Secretary of the Interior in 1939 and 1940. He was then elected to the Seventy-seventh Congress and served from January 3, 1941 to January 3, 1943,[2] but was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1942 to the Seventy-eighth Congress.

Beiter owned and operated a hatchery and feed business in Buffalo, New York, from 1944 to 1948, and was president of the National Customs Service Association from 1949 to 1961. He finished his career as Deputy Commissioner of Customs for the Treasury Department in Washington, D.C., from 1961 to 1964. He resided in Chevy Chase, Maryland.
