Supervising the agency for two of the best-known automobiles on the market, his territory covering Coos County, Edwin W. Colby maintain salesrooms in Whitefield, in connection with his garage, where he carried on a general automobile repairing business. Early training as a mechanic has equipped Mr. Colby with all essentials in this vocation, with a growing patronage as the best testimonial to his success. He is also known in social and fraternal affairs as a willing and conscientious worker. Mr. Colby's father and mother are natives of New Hampshire. The father, Albert B. Colby, now retired, was born in September, 1849, at Whitefield, and is well known in Masonic affairs of that town. The mother, Elizabeth (Summers) Colby, was born in Jefferson.

Edwin W. Colby was born May 24, 1882, at Whitefield, and attended the public schools there. In 1918, he became interested in the automobile craft, when he entered the employ of J. C. Stoughton, at Berlin, New Hampshire. Some time later, he formed a partnership with S. L. Richardson, in Berlin, the firm name being Colby & Richardson, handling the agency for Oakland motor cars. This partnership was dissolved, and in 1922, Mr. Colby came to Whitefield, where he established his present business. Here he carries on a general garage business, and in addition controls the Coos County Agency for Dodge and Oakland automobiles.

A republican in political principles, Mr. Colby is affiliated fraternally, with St. John's Lodge, Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Whitefield.
