JULIAN HIESTER BIDDLE
Admitted to the California bar a third of a century ago, Julian Hiester Biddle has become widely known as a prominent attorney of San Francisco, where he has continued in practice for more than two decades. He was born in Elkton, Cecil county, Maryland, August 13, 1874, a son of Noble J. and Maggie P. (Van Reed) Biddle, who came to the Golden state in 1882, settling in San Jose. Noble J. Biddle became a successful lawyer of that city and there remained active in practice until his death, which occurred in 1902.

Julian H. Biddle supplemented his public school education by a special course of study at the University of the Pacific in San Jose. Having determined to follow in the professional footsteps of his father, he read law in the latter's office and on the 3d of January, 1898, was admitted to the bar of California, while on the 10th of June, 1909, he was admitted to practice in the United States district court. He began practice in San Jose, being associated with his father under the firm style of Biddle & Biddle until the death of the senior partner in 1902. For eight years thereafter he continued the work of his chosen calling in San Jose and then in 1910 came to San Francisco, where he has since maintained an office in the Mills building. His clientage has steadily increased with the passing years as his professional ability has become more and more widely recognized. An excellent presence, an earnest, dignified manner, marked strength of character, a thorough grasp of the law and the ability accurately to apply its principles are factors in Mr. Biddle's effectiveness as an advocate.

On the 17th of June, 1903, Mr. Biddle was united in marriage to Miss Eva G. Chamberlain. He is a democrat in his political views and a Mason in his fraternal relations, while along strictly professional lines he has membership in the California State Bar Association. Though but eight years of age when he accompanied his parents on their removal from Maryland to California, Mr. Biddle absorbed much of the spirit of the typical southern gentleman and has won many warm friends by his courtly manner and his generous and kindly disposition.
