JOSEPH BROEDEL.
In the respect that is accorded to men who have fought their own way to success through unfavorable environment we find an unconscious recognition of the intrinsic worth of a character which not only can endure so rough a test, but gain new strength through the discipline. Joseph Broedel was not favored by inherited wealth or the assistance of influential friends, but in spite of this, by perseverance, industry and a wise economy, he has attained a comfortable station in life and won the respect and esteem of his fellowmen. He is a native of New York city, born on the 8th day of August, 1882, a son of Joseph and Emma (Hepner) Broedel, the latter of whom is deceased. The father was for a number of years engaged in business in New York and is still living in that city.

Joseph Broedel attended the public schools of New York city, and when old enough began work, being variously employed for a number of years. In 1907 he decided to search for a locality affording better opportunities and came to California, locating first in Los Angeles. Six months later he located in McKittrick where he was in the laundry business, and later moved to Taft, where he remained until July, 1919, when he came to Hanford. After looking the field over here, Mr. Broedel engaged in the transfer and storage business, which proved the right thing to do, for he has from the first enjoyed a large and constantly increasing patronage. He does general transfer work and hauling, in which he employs four trucks, and also has a large and well arranged storage building at No. 102 East Sixth street. Because of his uniform courtesy and efforts to accommodate the public, he commands his full share of the local business in his line and has so conducted his affairs as to win the confidence and esteem of the entire community.

Mr. Broedel was married to Miss Mamie Basden, who was born and reared in Oklahoma, and to them have been born three children - Gloe, Ola and Gail. The republican party receives Mr. Broedel's support and he is affiliated with the Woodmen of the World.
