Riverside County, CA Biographies





OSWALD M. ROBERTSON
Widely known as one of the most successful poultry men of Southern California, Mr. Robertson has justly earned his enviable position by his perseverance and his absolute integrity, his character being synonymous with his reputation - manly and sincere.

Born June 4, 1875, in Rothesay, Scotland, Mr. Robertson's parents were John and Elizabeth (Miller) Robertson, both also natives of Scotland. Upon completion of his high school studies in Oldham, England, whither the family removed in 1881, the son in 1887 entered the Manchester grammar school, from which he graduated in 1891. He then served two years in a law office in Glasgow, Scotland, thereafter being employed for a like period in a general merchandise office in that city. The company then, in 1893, transferred him to London, England, where for three years he acted as assistant manager. In 1896 he started on a trip around the world, returning to Glasgow after an absence of nine months. In January, 1907, he immigrated to America, settling in Arlington, Riverside county, Cal., since which time he has been engaged in poultry raising, his specialty being the hatching of chickens.

Mr. Robertson was united in marriage in Glasgow, Scotland, in October, 1902, to Miss Margaret Mary Roberts, a native of Wales. With their three children, Muriel, Gwendolyn and Mary, Mr. and Mrs. Robertson reside on their home place known as Roseneath Ranch, in Arlington. As members of the Arlington Presbyterian Church, they are never too busy with personal affairs to lend their material support to the cause of practical Christianity, and are highly esteemed throughout the community.
