Charles A. Hoff
Mr. Hoff is a son of S. B. Hoff, former Prothonotary of York County, Pennsylvania. He is a native of York County and entered business in Dauphin County first in Middletown in 1895. He engaged in the hardware business and in 1901 removed to Lykens in which he has since conducted his store. Mr. Hoff is one of Lykens successful citizens, and one who has always taken a keen interest in local developments. He is a graduate of Millersville State Normal Class of 1893. Mr. Hoff has served the borough as school director over a period of seventeen years. During this time the local school building was remodeled and rated a first-class high school of the state. He is a director of the First National Bank and manager of the Lykens Savings Fund and Loan Corporation for the past fifteen years. He has twice been elected representative of the county to the State Democratic Convention and in 1913 was appointed postmaster which he still retains. During his career as postmaster he has installed free delivery of mail and a Star Rural Route. His receipts are also just a few points from placing the local post office on a second class basis. His civic and community interest is largely manifested throughout the town.
