Biography* 1922  From "A memorial of the one hundredth anniversary of the marriage of Philip Schoff" By Mrs. Eloise (Walker) Wilder, Mrs. Fanny Ramsay (Wilder) Winchester

Charles Edmund Gaumer, eldest child of Dr. T. M. and Eliza Margaret (Cone) Gaumer, b. Marseilles, O. Nov. 28, 1876; m. Sept. 7, 1898, Effie Aletta Landis, only daughter of Mr. and Airs. S. M. Landis ; she was b. August 17, 1878, Urbana, O., graduated from High School there, class of 1897.

When he was ten years old, Charles Edmund Gaumer went with his parents to Urbana, O., to live ; he was educated there in the public schools. Mr. Gaumer's father having died a few months before the close of the school year, he, with his widowed mother, took charge of the "Champaign Democrat," and though compelled to divide his energies between his school work, and his late father's business affairs, he graduated with honor, from the Urbana High School, class of 1894. At the age of eighteen, Mr. Gaumer took upon his shoulders the cares and responsibilities which his father had laid down. He continued the management of the "Champaign Democrat," for five years, when turning it over to his younger brother Frank, upon his graduation from High School 1899, he purchased the "Bulletin", a weekly Democratic newspaper at Monticello, Ill. Under his wise management the "Bulletin" became a financial success, and a power in politics. In 1901, he bought the Middletown. O., "Daily Signal," which after bringing to a high standard he sold in 1908, and removed to Champaign, Ill., where he assisted in the publication of the "Champaign Daily News." In 1910, he returned with his wife and children to his old home in Urbana, O., and resumed his editorial work nn his late father's newspaper, the "Champaign Democrat," then under management of his brother Frank.

It has been said of Mr. Charles Edmund Gaumer, that as a writer, he is "forceful, genial, and fair; a memory well-stored with history, current literature, and political facts, adds strength io the pen of a polished writer."
