Joseph Henry Day
Birth: 1858
Leavenworth County
Kansas, USA
Death: Dec. 10, 1920

Hood River County

DAY, JOSEPH H., druggist, of Dayton, Wash., a son of the founder and original owner of the city site, Jesse Newberry Day, from who it takes its name, was born in Leavenworth, Kan., in 1857.

His early educational training was received in the public schools of Dayton, and he was for a time a student in Whitman College, taking the ordinary course; but in point of fact he is for the most part a self-educated man.

The drug business in which he is engaged, and of which he is the manager, was established in 1873. He took charge in 1877. It is the largest house of the kind in the city, and its business is constantly increasing with the growth of the place.

Mr. Day was married in 1879 to Miss Emily B. Vanderbilt, with whom he has one child, Everett.

His residence is one of the handsomest in the city. He is a member of the City Council, and Chairman of the Board of Water Works. In politics he is a Republican. Personally he is a man of fine business talents, with a keen eye to his own interests, yet ever ready to forward the best interests of his fellow citizens.

The preceding biography appeared in "History of Washington."
