EDMOND H. AMSTUTZ.
Among the strong and influential financial institutions of Napa county is the Bank of Italy, at Napa, which has
had a long and honorable career running back through the years of the Goodman Bank, its immediate predecessor,
and among the officers of this bank who have contributed their efforts to its present fine standing is the efficient
and capable assistant cashier, Edmond H. Amstutz, who has been identified with the institutions since 1913.
Mr. Amstutz was born in San Francisco on the 7th of February, 1879, and is a son of Henry L. and Louise J. (Amstutz)
Amstutz, who though bearing the same family name were not related. Henry L. Amstutz came from his native Switzerland
as a young man, in 1862, and he and Louise Amstutz were married January 26, 1878, in Oakland, California, she having
also immigrated from Switzerland some time previously. Mr. Amstutz came to Napa county in 1865 but went back to
San Francisco, where he spent several years. In 1879 he returned to Napa county, and he and his wife here spent
their remaining days, both now being deceased. Edmond H. Amstutz received his educational training in the public
and high schools of Napa and then took a course in the Napa Business College. His first employment was in the county
assessor's office, where he spent three years, and he then went to work for the Pacific Gas & Electric Company
at Napa, with which he remained for six years. He next went to Arizona, where he devoted his efforts to a mining
venture, which occupied his attention for seven years, at the end of which time, in 1913, he returned to Napa and
accepted a position as teller in the Goodman Bank, holding that position until the bank was purchased by the Bank
of Italy, in 1917, when he was promoted to the position of assistant cashier, which he now so acceptably fills.
Fraternally Mr. Amstutz is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the Benevolent Protective Order of
Elks, of which he has been treasurer for a number of years, the Native Sons of the Golden West, the Knights of
Pythias and the order of Druids, and he also belongs to the Napa Valley Country Club. He is a lover of outdoor
life, his favorite diversion being golf. A friendly and companionable man, he easily makes friends and is deservedly
popular in the circles in which he moves. He has taken a good citizen's interest in the welfare of his community,
cooperating in all movements for the advancement or improvement of the city along material, civic or moral lines.
