Charles O Cressy was born in December 5, 1888 2 in New York to George P and Aurelian F Cressy, 1.

He married Edith Foster and they had 2 children, Charles O Cressy Jr. and Judith C Cressy 2.

In the 1910 Census he is listed as a Wireless Engineer 1

For a year, until 1909, Mr. Cressy served with the Massie Wireless Telegraph in every capacity from operator to junior engineer. Following his employment he devoted two years to independent radio research.

In 1913, he assumed a Government position as radio expert and was placed in charge of communications with Santo Domingo.

The first successful radio station in this territory was installed and conducted by Mr. Cressy. During the Spanish revolution, he, like many others, became involved in local politics, and while pursuing his duty on a gunboat, enjoyed bombardments, blockades and other interesting incidents of the revolution.

In 1914 and 1915 Mr. Cressy served as operator and engineer with the Marconi Company, with location at the transatlantic station at New Brunswick, N. J.

During 1916, Mr. Cressy's services were engaged in his home state by the R. I. Naval Militia and from 1917 to 1919, he served in the United States Navy starting as Ensign and first serving as Radio Officer of the North Atlantic Patrol Squadron No. 1, with headquarters on the U.S.S. Chester. Here he served on the staff of Admiral (then Captain) Hillery P. Jones.

In August 1917, Mr. Cressy was transferred to European duty, becoming special convoy Radio officer. In March 1918, he undertook the exacting duties of Aviation Radio instructor. In this branch alone, his experiences would fill many a volume. Finally Mr. Cressy was assigned to St. Nazaire as Radio Officer of Base No. 8, in charge of all radio material and personnel. He continued in service here until the end of the war, finishing with the rank of Senior Lieutenant.

During 1920 and 1921 he was attached to the Headquarters of the U. S. Naval Reserve, serving as radio instructor on land and during sea cruises.
From 1922 to August 1924, he was Sales Manager of the Coto-Coil Co., and later organized the Eastern Electric & Mfg. Co., producing radio sets and coils.
