THOMAS F. CAMP.
Although comparatively still a young man, Thomas F. Camp, who is the efficient superintendent for the Napa Fruit
Company, has demonstrated qualities of character and business ability of a high order. For several years he has
been holding positions of trust and responsibility, and he stands deservedly high in the esteem and confidence
of all who know him.
Mr. Camp was born in Chicago, Illinois, on the 24th of January, 1899, and in 1902, when he was but three years
of age, he was brought by his parents to Los Angeles, California. He attended the grammar and high schools of that
city and then, being ambitious to equip himself for a business career, took extension business courses with the
University of California and the Alexander Hamilton Institute His first employment was on the Langdon fruit ranch,
in the Suisun valley, Solano county, where he learned the details of the cultivation, growth and handling of fruit
by the growers. He then entered the employ of the California Peach Growers Association in Suisun, with which he
remained for four years. Subsequently he became an inspector for the Prune Growers Association, being at that time
only nineteen years old and the youngest man in the state of California to hold so responsible a position. In 1919
Mr. Camp came to Napa as inspector for the Prune Growers Association, which position he held for two years, and
he then was appointed superintendent for the Napa Fruit Company, in which capacity he still continues, being also
the youngest man in the state to hold such a position.
An energetic and industrious man, Mr. Camp does well whatever he undertakes, and he has shown himself capable and
judicious in whatever position he has been placed. Since coming to Napa he has gained a high standing in the esteem
of the community and is numbered among the popular residents of this locality. Mr. Camp is a member of the Benevolent
Protective Order of Elks and the Napa Kiwanis Club. He was married to Miss Agnes Pelendini, who was born and reared
in this city.
