Charles H. Gaus
He was born of German parents in Ohio, but the family moved to Brooklyn, New York when he was two years old. In 1857 he went to Albany, New York, and worked at his uncle's drugstore. He fought in the American Civil War. In 1874, he opened his own drugstore on the corner of Washington Av. and Lark St. in Albany.
In Albany, he was at times a supervisor, School Commissioner, City Street Commissioner and City Assessor, and was Mayor from 1902 to 1908. He was New York State Comptroller from January 1, 1909, until his death, elected in 1908 on the Republican ticket. He was ill most of the time, and First Deputy Comptroller Otto Kelsey actually ran the office.
