James S. Chambers 1 Veteran Newspaperman Drops Dead on Way Home
James S. Chambers, for more than forty years a newspaperman in this city, and known to all newspapermen simply as “Jim” Chambers, dropped dead last night on Eighth and Brown streets, while on his way home at the close of his duties at the Public Ledger office, where he had been in various editorial capacity for twenty-one years.
Mr. Chambers was 69 years old. Living at 527 Brinton Street, Germantown, he was accustomed every night to walk to the Girard avenue station of the Philadelphia and Reading Railway before boarding a train. It was a while on his way there that he was stricken by a heart attack. He was identified through a card in his pocket which stated that he was a member of St. Albans Lodge, No. 529, F. and A.M.
For many years Mr. Chambers was city editor of the Record, and before that was with the Bulletin. He lived with his wife and daughter, Mrs. David Fox. He is also survived by his son, Jay Chambers, an artist, who lives in New York.
