Dennison Drew Byers, secretary and general manager of the Ohio Audit Company, was born in Columbus, September 2, 1871. His father, Dr Albert Gallatin Byers, died November 10, 1890. His mother, in her maidenhood Mary Ruthbun, is a native of Chesshire, Ohio, and is still living. She became the wife of Dr. Byers December 7, 1852. Reared under the parental roof D. D. Byers pursued his education in the public schools and in the Central high school, from which he was graduated in 1889. His father died soon afterward and the subject of this review entered upon his business career in the office of Colonel Church, car accountant for the Pittsburg, Cincinnati. Chicago & St. Louis Railroad. He occupied a clerical position there until 1890, when the office was moved from Columbus to Pittsburg and owing to his father's serious illness Mr. Byers left the position. Later he secured a clerical position in the auditor's office of the Columbus, Shawnee & Hocking Railroad. afterward the Columbus, Sandusky & Hocking Valley Railroad. This constituted an important step in his life, for from that position he was rapidly promoted, finally becoming bookkeeper and later traveling auditor, while subsequently he was promoted to the position of auditor and acted in that capacity until failing health caused by overwork prompted him to resign in the latter part of the year 1898.
On the 1st of January, 1899, Mr. Byers entered the employ of the Hallwood Cash Register Company in Columbus in the accounting department and during the last four years of his connection with that company had charge of the treasury and accounting departments. In May, 1905. however, he resigned to engage in business as an expert accountant and so continued until January, 1907, meeting with success in the undertaking. At the earnest solicitation of Willis G. Boland and Isaac D. Pugh he accepted the position of deputy treasurer of Franklin county on the 1st of February, 1907, and so continued until the 1st of September following when the term of his superior officer expired. He then returned to his former business as expert accountant, but after one month was solicited to join forces with the Ohio Audit Company and in January. 1908, was made secretary and general manager of the company. This is one of the best and largest concerns of the kind in the city, having a most efficient corps of accountants. The experience which Mr. Byers gained during the connection with the Columbus, Sandusky & Hocking Valley Railroad was probably the most important of his career, as during that time he did audit work for two receiverships. He also had valuable experience with the Hallwood Cash Register Company which was then engaged in a legal contention with the National Cash Register Company of Dayton. The business of the Ohio Audit Company has shown a very perceptible growth since Mr. Byers became connected therewith for he had became well known as all expert accountant in Columbus and business men had every reason to feel that service of this kind obtained from the company would be of the highest class. They deal with industrial and municipal corporations. installing business system examine banks for stockholders and audit the books of different companies. They had charge of the examination of the books of the Columbus Railway & Light Company for the city in the spring of 1908 and have done much other important work in this connection.
On the 21st of November 1900, Mr. Byers was married to Miss Blanch Miller, of this city, a daughter of Frank H. Miller. who for years has been identified with the pig iron industry. Mr. and Mrs. Byers have one son. Drew Miller. born November 30, 1902. The parents are members of the Methodist Episcopal church. Mr. Byers possesses marked musical talent and for nineteen years has been widely known as a singer in various churches of the city. while for a long period he was connected with the Orpheus Club. a men's musical club, and he is also a member of the Ohio Club and the Board of Trade. He possesses, moreover. much mechanical ingenuity and maintains a shop in his basement for his own recreation. The three lines to which he has given his attention-auditing, mechanical and musical-have all witnessed his skill and success. He gives hearty encouragement to everything connected with the art of nnisie and at the same time is loyal in matters of citizenship. supporting many measures for the general good. A man of unswerving integrity and honor, one who has a perfect appreciation of the higher ethics of life. he has gained and retained the confidence and respect of his fellowmen and is ju-tly accounted one of the leading residents of the capital city with whose interests he has always been identified.
