Birth: Nov. 24, 1883
Death: 1934

From the October, 1927 issue of Erie Railroad Magazine:

Elsewhere formal announcement is made of the appointment, effective Sept. 1, 1927, of John M. Condon as general manager of the New York district of the Erie Railroad, with headquarters at Jersey City, N.J.

John Marshall Condon was born Nov. 24, 1883, and received a high school education. Before he was 17 years old he was a ticket agent on the Big Four Railroad. About a year later he became a yard clerk for the Erie and afterward was successively yard clerk for the Chicago & Alton, at Bloomington, Ill., Erie yard clerk at Cleveland and Galion, O., night yardmaster at Galion and Marion, O., and finally general yardmaster at Marion. From February 10, 1912, to October, 1913, he was in the train service of the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific, and then for three months was yardmaster on the Big Four.

From Jan. 1, 1914, to June, 1916, he was general yardmaster of the Erie at Marion, and then for five months was inspector of transportation, lines west of Marion. His subsequent record was: Trainmaster, Kent division, Nov. 1, 1916, to Oct. 1, 1917; assistant superintendent of the Mahoning division, Oct. 1, 1917, to Jan. 24, 1918; superintendent of terminals, Jersey City, Jan. 24, 1918, to May 15, 1920; superintendent New York division and side lines, May 15, 1920, to Sept. 1, 1927. Effective June 16, 1921, he also had jurisdiction over the New York, Susquehanna & Western Railroad.

John M. Condon is married. He is a thorough railroad man and his promotion to the position of general manager of the Erie Railroad lines in the New York district is a deserved recognition of his signal ability.
