J. Elmer Barricklo, whose offices are in the Russ building, is one of the younger attorneys of San Francisco,
having been engaged in active practice only since 1926, but his work during this period has been strongly prophetic
of a brilliant future in the profession which he wisely chose as his life's vocation.
Mr. Barricklo was born in Santa Rosa, California, July 4, 1901, and is a son of John J. and Caroline Gertrude (Gregory)
Barricklo, both of whom were born in San Francisco. The Van Barkeloos, as the name was first used, came to the
American shores first in 1672. John J. Barricklo is now in the employ of the city of San Francisco. His wife is
a descendant of New England stock, the Harts having Veen prominent shoe manufacturers of Massachusetts.
In the grade schools, in Lowell high school, and in Drew's private school, J. Elmer Barricklo studied prior to
his entrance to the University of San Francisco and St. Ignatius Law School, where he pursued his legal studies.
He received the degree of Bachelor of Laws in 1926, and in the same year was admitted to the California state bar.
He is now associated in the practice of law with Jerome A. Duffy, forming one of the most progressive and popular
copartnerships in the city. Mr. Barricklo is a member of the California State Bar Association and the San Francisco
Mr. Barricklo is a member of the Kappa Alpha Phi fraternity, and he also belongs to the Olympic Club, the Commonwealth

of viticulture. He has a sister, Madeleine Alice Barricklo, who is a graduate of the Girls' high school and is
prominently known in San Francisco. Mr. Barricklo has shown a real civic spirit during the years of his practice,
and is building well the foundation of his future career in San Francisco.
