Frank B. Archer was born in Bellaire, Ohio on May 5, 1858. His father died that autumn, and his mother, with six children, was thrown into poverty. He began working in a glass factory at age 12, and by age 17 he had finished his apprenticeship and was a master tradesman.
In 1884, Archer left the factory to pursue the stationary and insurance business. Two years before that, he had begun his political career by being elected treasurer of Pultney Township. He served two terms on the city council of Bellaire, and was president of that body for two years. He was elected treasurer of Belmont County in 1889 and was re-elected. He was twice Chairman of the Belmont County Republican Executive Committee.
