EARL S. SAPIRO
The name and reputation of Earl S. Sapiro are widely known among the many music lovers and radio listeners of the bay district, and he is recognized as one of the most skilful musicians and orchestra leaders of the city of San Francisco. He is a native of this city, and is a son of Philip and Belle (Jalumstein) Sapiro. Philip Sapiro is likewise a musician of note, now being the leader of the San Francisco Municipal Band.

Earl S. Sapiro began his education in the public schools of San Francisco, graduated from the High School of Commerce, then attended the State Normal School, and finally took up his studies at the University of California, from which institution he graduated with the class of 1927. After receiving his diploma, he was associated for one and a half years with the Pacific Telephone & Telegraph Company, and later was engaged in newspaper work with both the San Francisco Chronicle and the San Francisco Examiner. Music, however, was his uppermost thought. As a lad, he had the inspiration of his father's talent, and during his school years he took an intense interest in musical affairs. He was saxophone soloist with the University of California Glee Club, and was also saxophone soloist with the Golden Gate Park Band for a period of three years. He was always associated with his father during those years, and from him received much valuable training and guidance. Now, with his own orchestra, which broadcasts by radio from the popular Palm Court of the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, he has assumed a commanding place in musical circles of the Pacific coast.

Mr. Sapiro is a member of the Masons, of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, the B'nai B'rith, the San Francisco Junior Chamber of Commerce, the University of California Alumni Association, and the Kappa Nu collegiate fraternity. He is a devotee of outdoor sports, especially of swimming, and in recent years has given much time to aviation, which is one of his favorite diversions.
