Century Memorial

Charles Wisner was another Centurion who almost invariably made a part of the Club’s monthly gatherings; quiet in manner but cheerful in conversation, never looking on the darker side of life. In one respect his life-story achieved a record which would be hard to match in the perpetually-shifting neighborhoods and homes of New York City. In the house on Twelfth Street in which he was born he lived during the whole of his seventy years of life, and in it he died.
