FRANK H. HOLLOWAY.
Frank H. Holloway, proprietor of the Vallejo Express and one of the well known and progressive young business men of Vallejo, long recognized as a "hustler" in his line, is a native of one of the prairie states but has been a resident of California since the days of his childhood and thus considers himself as much a Californian as any. He was born at Thayer, Nebraska, January 5, 1893, and is a son of John and Mayme (Powell) Holloway, who came to California with their family in 1897 and located at Pasadena, where John Holloway became engaged in the business of manufacturing automobile tops.

Reared at Pasadena, Frank H. Holloway had his schooling in them schools of that city and early became interested in mercantile activities, taking up the hardware line, and was thus engaged until in 1917, when, in connection with this country's activities in the World war, he became employed in the shipyards at San Pedro. Six months later he was transferred to San Francisco and was there engaged in further war work for two years, at the end of which time he established a tea route in that city and was thus engaged until on May 1, 1923, when he bought the equipment and establishment of the Vallejo and San Francisco Express, with headquarters at Vallejo, changed the name of this old line to the Vallejo Express and has since been engaged in business along that line. Mr. Holloway has a fleet of four trucks and handles both short and long hauls, with a special express service between Vallejo and San Francisco, making four runs a day.

Frank H. Holloway married Miss Regina Martin of Denver, Colorado, and they have a son, Jack Holloway. Mr. Holloway is an active member of the Vallejo Chamber of Commerce and of the local Kiwanis Club and is also affiliated with the local lodge of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows.
