FRANK A. McCORMICK.
Frank A. McCormick, a member of the board of trustees of the city of Benicia and for many years a well known yardman
in the employ of the Southern Pacific Railway Company at this place, has resided here for nearly a quarter of a
century and is thus thoroughly familiar with local conditions, a requisite to proper service in the municipality.
Mr. McCormick was born at Harlem, a suburb of the city of Chicago in the state of Illinois, on October 4, 1875,
and was there reared. When twenty one years of age he became connected with railway service, a line which ever
since has engaged his attention, entering at Chicago the employ of the Northwestern Railway Company. That was in
1896. Five years later, in 1901, he came to California and after five months of railway service in Oakland was
transferred to the service of the Southern Pacific's yards at Benicia and has ever since been engaged in that service,
one of the best known men in the city.
Mr. McCormick has long given his earnest attention to local civic affairs and in the election of April 14, 1923,
was elected to represent his ward on the board of trustees of the city of Benicia, a service he since has been
rendering in a quite effective and satisfactory manner. He and his wife are members of the Roman Catholic church
and he is an active member of the local council of the Knights of Columbus and of the Young Men's Institute. He
has for years been an active member of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, is a past sachem of Solano Tribe No.
114, Improved Order of Red Men, and has also passed the chairs in Carquinez Circle No. 698, Neighbors of Woodcraft.
He is a member of Vallejo Lodge No. 559, Benevolent Protective Order of Elks, and of Benicia Aerie No. 1764, Fraternal
Order of Eagles, and is likewise affiliated with the local branch of the Portuguese society I. D. E. S.
