Kings County, CA Biographies





ARTHUR W. REYNOLDS.
The history of Kings county would be incomplete and unsatisfactory without personal mention of those whose activities have been closely interwoven with the growth and prosperity of this locality. Among this representative class of citizens stands Arthur W. Reynolds, who for twenty two years has been identified with the Hanford Gas Company, and who is a native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, born on the 24th day of May, 1862.

Arthur W. Reynolds secured a good practical education in the public schools of that city and during all his business career he has been connected with illuminating and fuel gas service. His first employment was with the Goodwin Gas Stove & Meter Company of Philadelphia. Later he went to St. Paul, Minnesota, where for twenty years he was in the employ of the St. Paul Gas & Light Company, holding the position of superintendent of distribution during the greater part of that time. In 1901 Mr. Reynolds began working for the Fresno Gas Company in Fresno, California, and two years later came to Hanford and entered the employ of the Hanford Gas Company, which was at that time constructing and installing its system here. From a small beginning the business of this company has steadily increased, until now it has fourteen hundred consumers. Mr. Reynolds has been the efficient and courteous secretary of this company and has won the commendation of all who know him.

Aside from his duties with the gas company Mr. Reynolds has maintained close identification with the varied interests of the district in which he lives and is a member of the boards of directors of the Guaranty Land & Investment Company, the Buena Vista Land & Investment Company and the Water Belt Farms Company. He is the owner of a seventy acre cotton ranch, finely situated one mile south of Corcoran, this county.

Mr. Reynolds was married to Miss Annie Martin and they are the parents of three children: Edith, Mabel and Howard. Fraternally Mr. Reynolds is a member of Hanford Lodge No. 66, Knights of Pythias, and the Modern Woodmen of America.
