EDWARD A. TRENKLE
For a period of ten years, Edward A. Trenkle has been successfully engaged as the managing director of the popular
Dante Sanatorium at 1590 Broadway in the city of San Francisco. Mr. Trenkle was born January 3, 1886, in Mauch
Chunk, Pennsylvania. When he had attained the age of seventeen years, he went to New Jersey, where for a period
he engaged in the florist business, and then moved to New York city. In the eastern metropolis he was associated
with the packing house of Swift & Company over an interval of twelve years. On November 1, 1914, he came to
San Francisco, California, and here he accepted a position in the accounting department of the Panama-Pacific Exposition.
Next, he was an accountant for the Olympic Club; then assistant superintendent of the St. Francis Hospital and,
finally, on October 10, 1921, assumed his present important position as managing director of the Dante Sanatorium,
a description of which is presented upon another page of this publication.
Mr. Trenkle was married June 1, 1922, to Miss Zippora E. Wilcox, a native of New York city, and to their union
have been born two children, Edward and Nancy, aged six and four years, respectively (1931).
Mr. Trenkle is a member of the Union League Club and the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce. He has been attentive
to his duties as a citizen and has won many friends through his spirit of cooperation and loyalty. The success
of the Dante Sanatorium during the decade under his direction is ample evidence of the skill and ability he has
exercised in his work in San Francisco.
