PREFACE



This volume of biographies, now in its first biennial
edition, was originated by the editor in the hope that it
would prove to be an authentic guide to the achievements
of Notable Living Men and Women of the State of Calif-
ornia, for use in the libraries and schools of the state.

We do not claim that the volume is perfect — it is
doubtless true that errors will be found; undoubtedly there
will be some inconsistencies; errors will be found in both
inclusion and exclusion. When one takes into consider-
ation the amount of time and effort involved in the
preparation of such a work, especially the first edition,
perhaps one will prove a little lenient toward the editor.

We do not claim that the volume is complete — repeated
requests for data from certain individuals have failed to
elicit any response.

We do claim, however, that each and every name appear-
ing in this volume was nominated for that distinction
by one, or more, whose name had already been accepted
for inclusion by our Committee of Ten.

It is hoped that the pages of this edition will bear
their own testimony to the sincere efforts of the editor
to present a volume com.pletely different to any biograph-
ical work ever attempted in the United States. We refer
particularly to the name, title and degrees being at the
top of the biography — where they belong. We have, also,
in mind the paragraphing of each separate phase of an
individual's career (headed in italics).

While every human effort will be spent to improve each
succeeding edition, the fondest hopes of the editor will be
realized if this volume serves in a small measure, the pur-
pose for which it was intended, that of a quick and ready
reference to the Notable Living Men and Women of the
State of California.

QUALIFICATIONS FOR ADMISSION
IN WHO'S WHO IN CALIFORNIA

The individuals whose names appear in Who's Who in
California were nominated as being among the leader?
in their profession, occupation or locality.

The standards of admission divide the eligibles into
two classes: (1) those who are nominated owing to spe-
cial prominence in various lines of endeavor, making them
subjects of interest throughout the state; and (2) those
whose official position — civil, naval, military, educational
or religious, would arbitrarily result in their inclusion.

It is hoped that in due time this volume will present
the biographies of every outstanding California Notable
whose achievements make him, or her, a subject of
interest. With this thought in mind the editor would
appreciate the names, addresses and reason for inclusion
of those who should be, but are not, in this volume so
they may be in subsequent editions.



"No one has paid, or can pay, for inclusion in
Who's Who in California."
