JOHN H. BOMAN.
A prominent and well known citizen of Napa county is John H. Boman, whose dairy products have acquired a widespread
reputation and who has through the years of his residence here proven himself a good citizen in the best sense
of the term. He has attained notable success in his chosen vocation and has gained the confidence and respect of
all who have had dealings with him.
Mr. Boman was born on a farm in the state of Michigan on the 13th of June, 1883, and he is a son of W. H. and Allina
(Field) Boman. His parents came to California in 1904, locating in Napa where the father followed the carpenter's
trade for many years, but he is now employed with the Southern Pacific railroad in Nevada. John H. Boman received
his education in the public schools of his native state, including one year of high school work. As a young man
he obtained work in a furniture factory and also gave some attention to mining, and in 1907 he came to California
and secured employment in the cement works at Napa Junction. Later he engaged in the mercantile business in Napa
but afterward turned his attention to farming, in which he met with good success.
In February, 1919, Mr. Boman established his dairy, which is now popularly known as Boman's Dairy, "Napa's
most sanitary dairy," and here too he has shown business ability and technical skill of a high order. Beginning
in a modest way, and increasing the equipment from time to time as the growth in business necessitated, he has
now reached the point where he commands the major portion of the local trade in his line, the principal products
sold being butter, cottage cheese, milk and cream. Twelve people are employed in the manufacture and handling of
the products and two auto trucks are used in their delivery.
Mr. Boman was married to Miss Hazel Burrell, who was born and reared in Napa, and they are the parents of two children,
Robert and Gail. Mr. Boman has been a lifelong supporter of the republican party and stands earnestly for all measures
or movements which have for their object the betterment of the community along material, civic or moral lines.
Fraternally he is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and the Napa Rotary Club. He is very fond of
outdoor life, especially of hunting and fishing, and is a genial and interesting companion, having long enjoyed
a large and favorable acquaintance throughout this section of the county. Generous and kindly in his attitude toward
those less fortunate than himself, he is a liberal contributor to all worthy benevolent or charitable organizations.
