FRED P. BLODGETT
A man of sterling principles and good business judgment, Mr. Blodgett ranks among the enterprising and progressive
citizens of San Jacinto, to the upbuilding of which he is ever ready to lend what aid lays in his power. He was
born in Aroostook county, Me., September 25, 1874, a son of George R. and Emily E. (Perry) Blodgett, both natives
of that state and the former now engaged in farming near San Jacinto, his wife having died in 1889.
F. P. Blodgett received a good common school education and grew to manhood on the farm. He accompanied his parents
to South Dakota, and while living there was employed at farm labor. Thinking to better his condition he came to
California, first securing employment as a ranch hand in Ventura county, and later locating in Riverside, where
he was employed as a stationery engineer for nine years, the last two years being in the employ of the Cresmer
Manufacturing Company. With his savings he came to San Jacinto in 1909 and purchased the San Jacinto Valley Creamery
and since that time has given his entire time to its management and has increased the daily output from one hundred
pounds to four hundred pounds of butter fat. He uses the most modern methods and is rapidly enlarging his plant.
He also owns ten acres of land adjoining the city.
While living in Riverside Mr. Blodgett was an active member of Riverside Lodge, No. 282, I. O. O. F., and still
retains his membership there. He is a Socialist in political belief and renders all possible aid to the cause he
represents. He is a self made man in the best sense of the word and enjoys the esteem and good will of his fellow
