H. H. HAUDYSHELL.
Among the enterprising and successful institutions which are contributing to the commercial prosperity of Hanford, specific mention should be made of the Hanford Bakery, owned and operated by H. H. Haudyshell. He was born in Waterloo county, Iowa, on the 17th day of September, 1886. In his childhood the family moved to Bourbon county, Kansas, and settled on a farm and there he was reared to manhood, acquiring his education in the district schools of that locality. In 1908 he went to Great Bend, Kansas, and learned the baking trade, at which he was employed for two years. In 1910 he engaged in business on his own account, but later sold out and acquired a bakery in Garden City, Kansas. In May, 1923, he came to California, locating in Huntington Beach. In September of that year he came to Hanford and bought of Adolph Scheffler the bakery which he now operates, at No. 210 West Fourth street. This is the oldest bakery in Kings county, having been established here some thirty years ago by Mr. Trosch, a native of Switzerland. It passed through a number of hands during the years since then, but seems now to have come into the right hands to be made a large success. Mr. Haudyshell makes the popular "Butter Crisp" bread, of which he distributes over fifteen hundred loaves daily, and his business doubled in volume during the first year under his management. Mr. Haudyshell has shown a public spirited attitude since becoming identified with this community, giving his earnest support to every movement for the community welfare and is eminently deserving of the high position which he occupies in popular esteem.

Mr. Haudyshell was married to Miss Elsie Bayon, who was born and reared in Fort Scott, Kansas, and to them have been born two children: Jack and Beverley. Mr. Haudyshell is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and the Woodmen of the World.
