ARTHUR L. BRODT
Arthur L. Brodt, manager of the Pacific Meat & Packing Company, at Berkeley, is well qualified for this position,
possessing splendid executive ability and a thorough knowledge of the meat business. Mr. Brodt was born in San
Francisco, California, on the 13th of March, 1890, is a son of Lincoln and Emma Brodt and is descended from old
pioneer stock, his paternal grandfather having come to this state in 1849. His father was born at Quaker Hill,
in Grass valley, Nevada county, this state, and was for many years closely identified with mining interests, having
served as superintendent of some of California's noted mines. In 1896 he brought his family to Mont Clair, Alameda
county, and is now retired from active business. His wife died March 13, 1926, at the age of fifty one years.
Arthur L. Brodt received his education in the San Pablo avenue school and the Berkeley high school, and then learned
the meat business, becoming an expert butcher. He worked for various meat packing companies, being so engaged when
the United States entered the World war. He enlisted for four years in the United States Navy, in which he served
until the close of the war, being at Hampton Roads, in the Chesapeake bay, when the Armistice was signed. He had
risen to the rank of second class company commander, and at the close of the war resigned and was honorably discharged
as a seaman. On his return home, Mr. Brodt went to work for Steinbeck & Company at Berkeley, with whom he remained
for four years, and then became manager for the Union Meat & Packing Company, at Oakland. He was with that
firm four years and in 1927 resigned in order to accept his present position as manager for the Pacific Meat &
Packing Company, at Berkeley, having complete charge of the packing plant. He has discharged his duties in a highly
creditable manner and has been an important factor in the successful operation of this business.
In 1913, in Oakland, Mr. Brodt was united in marriage to Miss Blanche Hogan, who was born and reared in that city.
Mr. Brodt is a member of the American Legion and gives his political support to the republican party. A man of
earnest purpose and upright life, he has been loyal and true in every relation, and has shown sound judgment, great
energy and the ability to handle men and at the same time retain their confidence and respect. He has many warm
friends throughout this community and is highly esteemed by all who know him.
