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.
