ARTHUR D. CAMPBELL.
In these days of large commercial transactions, when credits are a large factor in the daily round of business,
the province of the banker is wide and important. The banks of Kings county have been the backbone of our commercial
prosperity and among those who have been actively identified with financial affairs in this district specific mention
should be made of Arthur D. Campbell, the efficient and popular cashier of the First National Bank of Lemoore.
He is a native of the city now honored by his citizenship, born on the 27th day of October, 1888, a son of D. P.
and Verna (Brown) Campbell, the former a native of Missouri and the latter of West Virginia. D. P. Campbell came
to Lemoore in 1886 and here followed his trade of carpenter for a time, later becoming foreman of Nathan Brothers'
warehouse. He is now deceased.
Arthur Campbell acquired his education in the public schools of Lemoore, graduating from the high school. In 1909
he entered the Bank of Lemoore as a clerk, was later promoted to the position of assistant cashier and eventually
was made cashier. In 1922, upon the consolidation of the Bank of Lemoore with the First National Bank, under the
latter name, he was chosen cashier of the merged institution. Closely in touch with local commercial affairs and
exercising a wise discrimination in the handling of the funds of the bank, he has been a valuable asset not only
to the stockholders of the bank, but to the business interests of the community. Mr. Campbell is a man of action
rather than words and is universally recognized as a splendid citizen, reliable and trustworthy, who has the best
interests of his fellowmen at heart.
Mr. Campbell married Miss Margaret Thomayer, a native of this state. He is a constant and consistent booster for
Lemoore and has contributed in every way within his power to promote the welfare of his city along all normal lines.
He is president of the Lemoore Chamber of Commerce and is treasurer of the municipality; is a member of Hanford
Lodge No. 1259, Benevolent Protective Order of Elks; and of the Kiwanis Club of Hanford. He is the owner of a splendid
ranch, equipped with modern improvements, and from the operation of which he derives considerable pleasure.
