Biography: 

Charles Mallison, Sr., is husband to Margaret Mallison, brother-in-law of Gavin Stevens, and father of Chick Mallison. A conventional business man of his time and place, he is initially opposed to and resentful of those who purchase automobiles. He enjoys lively exchanges with his wife and teasing his brother-in-law over Eula Snopes; Charlie says to Maggie: "Flem Snopes's wife riding into Jefferson society on Judge Lemuel Stevens's daughter's coat-tail" (51). Maggie Mallison tells Gowan and his friend Top to go out and help Manfred De Spain "so you both will learn something about automobiles when your Cousin Charley buys one;" in response, Charlie Mallison says, "Me buy one of those noisy, stinking things...why I'd lose every horse and mule customer I've got" (70).
