FRED J. BILLS
One of the rising young attorneys of Alameda county is Fred J. Bills, of Oakland, who, though a comparatively recent addition to the ranks of his profession here, has made a distinctively favorable impression on all who have been associated with him. Mr. Bills was born in Oakland on the 24th of April, 1899, and is a son of John and Theresa Blanche (Kronenberg) Bills, the former born in New York state and the latter in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. When a boy, the father came across the plains with his parents to California, the family locating in Oakland. Later the grandfather went to eastern Oregon, where he engaged in ranching, remaining there for a number of years, or up to the time of his death, his wife also dying there After their deaths their son John returned to Oakland, where he engaged in the meat business, in which he met with gratifying success, and continued in that line of business until his death, which occurred July 9, 1927, at the age of sixty two years. He was a republican in his political views.

Fred J. Bills secured his early education in the public schools of Oakland and graduated from the Fremont high school in 1916. He then entered the University of California, and graduated in 1921 from the College of Letters and Science with the degree of A. B., and in 1922, secured the degree of Master of Arts. Entering the law school of his alma mater, he was graduated with the degree of Doctor of Jurisprudence in 1923, since which time he has been fictively engaged in the practice of law in Oakland, having his offices in the Oakland Bank building. Through his untiring zeal in behalf of his clients, his determined prosecution of all causes committed to his care and his strict regard for the noblest ethics and traditions of his profession, he has gained recognition as a safe and dependable lawyer and now has a large clientele.

Mr. Bills is a member of the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks, the Knights of Columbus, the American Legion and the Young Men's Institute. During the World war Mr. Bills was a member of the students' army training camp at the University of California, in which he served until the close of the war. He belongs to Oakland Parlor, No. 50, N. S. G. W., of which he is a past president and is now a district deputy. He does thoroughly whatever he undertakes, has taken a deep interest in the civic welfare of his city and gives his earnest support to every measure calculated to advance the public interests. His worth as a man and citizen is widely acknowledged, while as a member of the bar his position is an enviable one.
