WILLIAM H. HOLM.
Among the representative younger men of this locality is William H. Holm, a native of California. He was born in
Modoc county on the 5th day of May, 1897, and is the son of Gustav and Anna (Fasbinder) Holm, the latter of whom
died when he was but five years of age. Gustav Holm first came to California in 1885, decided to make his permanent
home here and then returned east to be married. Bringing his bride back to this state, he engaged in farming and
devoted practically his entire life to that pursuit. William H. Holm received his education in the district schools
of Modoc county and remained for a number of years with his father on the home ranch. He then went to work in the
Mare Island navy yard at Vallejo, and later was employed in the Union Iron Works at Alameda. His next occupation
was as a member of the police force at Vallejo, but later he returned to the home ranch, where he remained until
1922, when he was appointed superintendent of road district No. 3 and has since devoted himself closely to the
performance of his official duties. He is thoroughly practical in all that he does and he has ably demonstrated
his qualifications for the position which he holds. He has made a fine record as a road builder and under his careful
and painstaking supervision the highways of this district are maintained constantly in first class condition.
Mr. Holm married Miss Sylvia Waite, who was born in Massachusetts, but was brought to this state in young girlhood
and was reared and educated here. They have two children, a son, William, Jr., and a daughter, Kathlyn. Mr. Holm
gives his political support to the republican party, while his fraternal relations are with the Fraternal Order
