FOREWORD 

WHO'S WHO IN CALIFORNIA is a Directory of Biographical Sketches 
of men and women who are, or who have been, prominently connected with the 
history of California. Not only do officials, soldiers, persons noteworthy in the 
church, at the bar, in literature, art, science, and the professions find place, but also 
those who have contributed to the industrial, commercial and agricultural progress 
and growth of the State. The aim of the Work is to exemplify and perpetuate, in 
the broadest sense, California civihzation through its chief personalities, and to 
reflect the spirit, genius and Hfe of each section. 

It IS acknowledged that the great forces which today contribute most largely 
to the growth of California are the people who have developed its resources, and 
their achievements deserve and have been accorded representation in these pages. 
Frank recognition is given to those who have ancient lineage and records, and also to 
others founded in the soil who are destined to become the ancestry of the future. The 
names of those individuals who have achieved prosperity or success through intelli- 
gent, arduous and faithful labor for the benefit of the State and the advancement of 
its people are justly entitled to perpetuation and one of the purposes of this Direc- 
tory is to supply an invaluable and useful means for establishing identity, relation- 
ship, birth, death, official position, and other important data which are necessary to 
the making up of such biographical history. 

In the gathering of material for this Work there has been inaugurated a system 
of local contributions from every section of California, by which are secured the 
facts in reference to many persons who have -heretofore been omitted from bio- 
graphical notice. Our State annals are full of characters worthy of the emulation of 
posterity, but their story will perish, bearing no fruit, if it be not gathered up, and 
preserved by some such method of extended research as has been adopted by the 
publishers of WHO'S WHO IN CALIFORNIA. 

The rapidity of the State's growth makes it almost impossible for each section 
to be thoroughly acquainted with the other, and it follows that a substantial pro- 
portion of those who have performed great constructive service for their fellow men 
are httle known beyond the borders of their local community, therefore this Work 
performs a commendable service by introducing these Nation-builders to the World- 
at-large. 

Works of this magnitude necessarily cannot be published often, consequently 
It has been thought wise to include in WHO'S WHO IN CALIFORNIA some of 
the younger men, and others, possibly not yet known, who give promise of becoming 
notable and representative in the future, so that when they suddenly come into 
prominence, as is so frequently the case, this Directory will contain information of 
their lives, which will show the groundwork of their characters and their claim upon 
the expectations of the future, the ideal of a biographical directory being to antici- 
pate the information demanded about new people as they come into prominence. 



It is aimed to have these biographical sketches include all the facts worthy ot 
mention, and, taken together, to make a contemporary History of California, politi' 
cal, social, commercial, agricultural, and industrial. 

A departure in WHO'S WHO IN CALIFORNIA is the abandonment of 
alphabetical arrangement. Experience has brought forth the knowledge that many 
important sketches invariably come to hand after their natural section in an alpha' 
betically arranged book is closed, requiring that the sketch be omitted entirely or 
that an Addenda be added to the book which at once destroys any alphabetical 
arrangement, diminishes its value for reference, and compels a reliance upon the 
Index. So, in view of the grave disadvantages of the alphabetical method, the pub- 
lishers of WHO'S WHO IN CALIFORNIA are convinced that simple traditional 
precedent for such arrangement should not be permitted to destroy freshness of 
material or stand in the way of manifest improvement. They have, therefore, disre- 
garded the alphabetical order and instead have placed in this Volume a full, analyti- 
cal Index which makes its vast information immediately and conveniently accessible. 

The publishers hope to issue subsequent editions of WHO'S WHO IN 
CALIFORNIA biennially, bringing to date the sketches of a great majority of 
present subscribers, and including the photographs of as many of such as can be 
secured. The publishers desire also to give representation in proposed subsequent 
editions to many additional representative Californians who are not included 
herein.

WHO'S WHO IN CALIFORNIA 



IB 



SCATENA, Lorenzo, banker; b. 
Lucca, nr. Florence, Italy, Feb. 10, 
18 TO; s. Francesco and Florinda (Mas- 
soni) S.; attended common schools in 
Italy until twelve yrs. of age when he 
sailed for America, arriving in New 
York in mid-winter. En route he was 
complimented by ship-captain for his 
adeptness in the duties of a sailor and 
particularly for his agility in climbing 
the mast faster than any member of 
the crew. With California as his goal 
he took passage tor Colon from where 
he was obliged to walk most of the 
way across the tropical Isthmian wil- 
derness to the Pacific Coast because 
of the fact that the Isthmian Railway 
was not then completed. Was forty- 
six days aboard ship from Panama to 
San Francisco where he arrived in 
1862. Years of work as a laborer in 
the California fields and vineyards fol- 
lowed, during which period he mar- 
ried, reared three children, Henry, 




Florence and Pearl, and was left a 
widower. Subsequently, in 1876, while 
witnessing the unloading of a cargo of 
strawbernes from the steamer Relief, at 
the old Jackson Street wharf, San 
Francisco, he met Mrs. Virginia Gian- 
nini, a widow w'ith three small chil- 
dren, namely Amadeo Peter, now 
chairman of the advisory committee of 
the Bank of Italy, N.T. H: S. Assn., 
Attilio H., now chairman, board of di- 
rectors. The Bank of America, N.A., 
New York, and George, now president 
of L. Scatena ii Co., commission mer-
