CARL FREDRICK LOESER.
Improvement and progress may well be said to form the keynote to the success which has come to Carl Fredrick Loeser,
a well known and popular employe of the Southern Pacific Railroad and one of Solano county's representative citizens.
He has not only been deeply interested in the advancement of his individual affairs, but his influence has been
felt in the upbuilding of the communities in which he has lived, therefore he is deserving of the place which he
holds in the esteem of his fellow citizens. Mr. Loeser is a native of Germany, where he was born on the 6th day
of October, 1881, son of Carl F. and Margaret (Umland) Loeser. When he was about five years of age his parents
brought their family to the United States. They came at once to Solano county and located at Cordelia, where the
father followed the carpenter trade, which had been his occupation in his native land. He is now deceased and is
survived by his widow.
The Junior Carl F. Loeser received his education in the public schools at Cordelia and while still in his teens
went to work on ranches in that section of the county. At the age of thirteen years he went to San Francisco and
obtained a situation as clerk in a store, for which work he received a wage of five dollars a week. He held that
position about eight months and then returned to the home farm. Later he went to work on a cattle ranch, at ten
dollars a month, working there for nine months. With the money he thus received his father built a home for the
family. Then for a number of years he was employed as a clerk in the Sube general merchandise store at Cordelia
and then for several years was employed on the leased ranches of the Earl Fruit Company. He then went to Damelle,
Contra Costa county, where for about eight months he was employed as a clerk in a store, and at the end of that
time went to Oakland and obtained employment in the ship yards during the World war. In 1919 he returned to Cordelia
and is now employed as a section foreman on the Southern Pacific Railroad.
Mr. Loeser married Miss Sadie Glashoft, daughter of an old and prominent pioneer family of this section of the
county, and they have a son, Keith Glashoff Loeser. Mr. Loeser has always given his support to the republican party
and is deeply interested in the affairs of the community affecting the public welfare. He is a member of the Free
and Accepted Masons and the Sciots.
