Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Charles Shipman Payson (October 16, 1898 - May 5, 1985) was the owner of the New York Mets of the National League from 1975 through 1980. In 1975, he inherited the club upon the death of his wife, Mets founder Joan Whitney Payson. Payson was a graduate of Yale University and Harvard Law and became a prominent lawyer and businessman in New York City. He married Joan Whitney in 1924, and together they funded the building of Pepperdine University's library. Charles didn't share his wife's enthusiasm for the Mets. He delegated his authority to his three daughters, with their youngest, Lorinda Payson de Roulet, becoming team president.
