FOREWORD

WHO'S WHO IN CALIFORNIA is a Directory of Biographical Sketches
of men and women who are, or who have been, prominently connected with the
history of California. Not only do officials, soldiers, persons noteworthy in the
church, at the bar, in literature, art, science, and the professions find place, but also
those who have contributed to the industrial, commercial and agricultural progress
and growth of the State. The aim of the Work is to exemplify and perpetuate, in
the broadest sense, California civihzation through its chief personalities, and to
reflect the spirit, genius and Hfe of each section.

It IS acknowledged that the great forces which today contribute most largely
to the growth of California are the people who have developed its resources, and
their achievements deserve and have been accorded representation in these pages.
Frank recognition is given to those who have ancient lineage and records, and also to
others founded in the soil who are destined to become the ancestry of the future. The
names of those individuals who have achieved prosperity or success through intelli-
gent, arduous and faithful labor for the benefit of the State and the advancement of
its people are justly entitled to perpetuation and one of the purposes of this Direc-
tory is to supply an invaluable and useful means for establishing identity, relation-
ship, birth, death, official position, and other important data which are necessary to
the making up of such biographical history.

In the gathering of material for this Work there has been inaugurated a system
of local contributions from every section of California, by which are secured the
facts in reference to many persons who have -heretofore been omitted from bio-
graphical notice. Our State annals are full of characters worthy of the emulation of
posterity, but their story will perish, bearing no fruit, if it be not gathered up, and
preserved by some such method of extended research as has been adopted by the
publishers of WHO'S WHO IN CALIFORNIA.

The rapidity of the State's growth makes it almost impossible for each section
to be thoroughly acquainted with the other, and it follows that a substantial pro-
portion of those who have performed great constructive service for their fellow men
are httle known beyond the borders of their local community, therefore this Work
performs a commendable service by introducing these Nation-builders to the World-
at-large.

Works of this magnitude necessarily cannot be published often, consequently
It has been thought wise to include in WHO'S WHO IN CALIFORNIA some of
the younger men, and others, possibly not yet known, who give promise of becoming
notable and representative in the future, so that when they suddenly come into
prominence, as is so frequently the case, this Directory will contain information of
their lives, which will show the groundwork of their characters and their claim upon
the expectations of the future, the ideal of a biographical directory being to antici-
pate the information demanded about new people as they come into prominence.



It is aimed to have these biographical sketches include all the facts worthy ot
mention, and, taken together, to make a contemporary History of California, politi'
cal, social, commercial, agricultural, and industrial.

A departure in WHO'S WHO IN CALIFORNIA is the abandonment of
alphabetical arrangement. Experience has brought forth the knowledge that many
important sketches invariably come to hand after their natural section in an alpha'
betically arranged book is closed, requiring that the sketch be omitted entirely or
that an Addenda be added to the book which at once destroys any alphabetical
arrangement, diminishes its value for reference, and compels a reliance upon the
Index. So, in view of the grave disadvantages of the alphabetical method, the pub-
lishers of WHO'S WHO IN CALIFORNIA are convinced that simple traditional
precedent for such arrangement should not be permitted to destroy freshness of
material or stand in the way of manifest improvement. They have, therefore, disre-
garded the alphabetical order and instead have placed in this Volume a full, analyti-
cal Index which makes its vast information immediately and conveniently accessible.

The publishers hope to issue subsequent editions of WHO'S WHO IN
CALIFORNIA biennially, bringing to date the sketches of a great majority of
present subscribers, and including the photographs of as many of such as can be
secured. The publishers desire also to give representation in proposed subsequent
editions to many additional representative Californians who are not included
herein.
