Howard Hammond, Fine Citizen

Stockton has few citizens with a broader background of pioneer traditions than Howard Hammond, whose sudden passing is a shock to the community. And few citizens have been identified with more phases of community development and present-day activities than he.

A native of Stockton, of the third generation in a family which became established in the Valley in 1849, Mr. Hammond always had the growth and best interests of Stockton at heart. He was one of the most enthusiastic workers for deep water when the project was in its infancy. In Chamber of Commerce activities and civic endeavors generally he both labored and led. In his business and financial enterprises he established a name for integrity, fair dealing and sound judgement.

A cousin of Robert T. McKee, co-donor with Mrs. McKee of the Haggin Memorial Galleries, Mr. Hammond was an esteemed member of the San Joaquin Pioneer and Historical Society directorate. His contacts with Mr. McKee and his business experience made him invaluable to the board.

Church, fraternal and personal activities, as well as an ideal family life, added to the picture of Howard Hammond as a well-balanced, high-type citizen.
