EDWIN J. TREMONT
Recognized as one of the most able attorneys of the San Francisco bar is Edwin J. Tremont, whose offices are situated
at 564 Market street. He is a native son of San Francisco, his birth having occurred January 30, 1878, and he is
of French and Swiss parentage, his father and mother having come to California from Switzerland in 1871. He is
one of the seven children born to his parents, all of whom are living.
Edwin J. Tremont attended the grammar schools of Salinas and San Leandro, and completed a high school course in
San Francisco by graduation with the class of 1896. He was ambitious to become a lawyer, but to obtain the necessary
legal education he found it necessary to earn his own way, working in mines and also obtaining employment in Hawaii.
Eventually he entered the Hastings College of Law, from which institution he received the degree of Bachelor of
Laws in 1904, and in the same year he was admitted to practice in the state of California and in the United States
supreme court. First, he was associated with Garret W. McEnerney and H. S. Goodfellow, and then established his
own office, which he has maintained since. He does a most satisfactory amount of litigation and specializes in
civil cases. He is a member of the San Francisco Bar Association, the California State Bar Association, and the
American Bar Association. Mr. Tremont has acquired a distinct prestige through his ethical methods of conducting
his work, and he holds the confidence of all who have entrusted their cases to him.
Mr. Tremont was married to Miss Florence Kingdon, who was born in Canada. To their union has been born one child,
Marion. They have a beautiful country place situated at Saratoga, and here the owner finds his greatest diversion
from the strenuous routine of law practice.
In religious belief, Mr. Tremont is a Protestant. He has accorded his support to the republican party in political
affairs, but has not sought candidacy for public office. He is a member of the blue lodge, chapter, and council
in the Masonic fraternity, and belongs to the Commonwealth Club of San Francisco. He has been alive to his duties
of citizenship, and has always maintained a friendly spirit of cooperation among his fellows.
