STEPHEN P. GALVIN
Prominent among the professional men of Los Banos may be mentioned Stephen P. Galvin, attorney at law. He was born
in Boston, Mass., April 20, 1880, and educated in the public schools and the Boston University Law School; he had
a law office in New York City and in Oklahoma. He came to San Francisco in 1910 and was in the law office with
Charles F. Hanlon until he came to Los Banos in 1913, where he has since lived and practiced his profession.
In addition to the fact that he is well qualified by education and experience, with a keen and analytical mind,
characteristic of the typical attorney, is another important fact that he is interested in public affairs and is
thoroughly posted concerning the problems of the municipality in which he lives. This adaptation to fill positions
of trust in the city was appreciated by his fellow citizens in his election to the office of city attorney, city
health officer, and secretary of the Chamber of Commerce. He has always been prominent in Democratic politics and
is a member of the Democratic County Central Committee, and the Democratic State Central Committee.
On August 17, 1909, Mr. Galvin married Effie M. Burke and they have two children: Stephen P. Jr. and Martha R.
Fraternally, Mr. Galvin is a member of the Knights of Columbus of Merced, and of the Woodmen of the World, the
Druids, and the Fraternal Order of Eagles, of Los Banos.
