A. H. S. Cantlin    

A. H. S. CANTLIN, vice president and general manager of the Lehigh Valley Electric Light and Power Company, was born June 22, 1879, in Philadelphia, a son of William H. and Mary (Fry) Cantlin. He was educated in the public schools, and in 1899 was graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with the degree of electrical engineer. His first employment was with the St. Louis Transit Company. He remained with this company until 1904, when he became engineer for the E. W. Clark Company, of Philadelphia. Early in 1908 Mr. Cantlin came to Allentown as business manager for what was then known as the Allentown Light and Power Company. When the company was reorganized in 1911 under the name of the Lehigh Valley Electric Light and Power Company, he was elected vice president and general manager. Mr. Cantlin is an engineer of national reputation and his knowledge of the business has been a great factor in the success of the company which he manages. He is actively interested in the social, religious and civic life of the community, and besides being a member of the Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club, is affiliated with the following organizations: Jordan Lodge of Masons; Elks; Livingston Club; Bethlehem Club; Lehigh Country Club; Engineers’ Club, Philadelphia. On October 11, 1909, he married Estelle D. Wright, daughter of Hon. Robert E. Wright, of Allentown.
