CHARLES E. PARKER
Boston, Oct. 27 (Special).-- Charles Edward Parker, who was for many years one of Boston's prominent architects, died at Newport News yesterday at the age of sixty-four years. He was the supervising architect of the new part of the Boston Postoffice, of the Shawmut Congregational Church, of the First Eliot Church of Newton (destroyed a few years ago), and of many other churches, town halls and private residences in outlying towns and cities. Mr. Parker's ability was such that he was prominently mentioned as the successor of Supervising Architect [Mifflin E.] Bell, of the Treasury Department. He succeeded Thomas Brown in 1883 in the superintendence of the construction of the Postoffice, and his work won many commendations. Mr. Parker came to Boston at the age of twenty years, having previous to that time made his home in Keene, N.H. He was a brother of Horatio G. Parker, one of Boston's lawyers, and of Professor Henry E. Parker, of Dartmouth College.
