Remembering Margaret Griffith This Mother's Day
This Mother’s Day, we remember Mrs. Margaret Griffith—a pioneer, visionary, and mother to our current President and CEO David Griffith.
After her husband’s untimely passing in 1951, she took on roles that many women wouldn’t dream of during that time…she became one of Utica’s first woman stockbrokers and a business owner.
“That Margaret Griffith was a woman ahead of her time” noted John Urbanek, author of her 1958 “People Worth Knowing” feature in the Utica Observer Dispatch.
She was also praised for her 40 years of business leadership in the Oneida and Herkimer County Historical Society’s book “Women Belong In History Books.”
Happy Mother’s Day, Margaret! Your legacy lives on each and every day here at M. Griffith.
