Charley Edwards

Charley is a young actor, the "leading juvenile" of a Pittsburgh stock theater company, and a friend of Paul's. He encourages Paul's interest in the theater, inviting him to the company's Sunday rehearsals and allowing him to hang around.

After Paul leaves home, Cather explains that Charley had helped Paul plan his trip to New York.
