Kings County, CA Biographies





F. W. DUTRA.
Among the widely known and well liked citizens of Hanford is F. W. Dutra, who is rendering efficient service as secretary and head bookkeeper of the Lucerne Creamery Company and secretary of the Hanford Mercantile Company. He was born on his father's ranch in this county on the 15th day of November, 1889. His parents were Manuel and Mary Dutra, both of whom were natives of the isle of Pico, one of the Azores, whence the father came to California in 1883, followed by his wife two years later. They are remembered as among the finest citizens in their locality. They are both deceased, the father dying in 1914 and the mother in 1923. F. W. Dutra secured a good public school education, graduating from the Hanford high school, and then took a course in Heald's Business College, from which he was graduated in 1910. He immediately went to work for the Lucerne Creamery Company and has remained with this firm ever since with the exception of two years - 1911-12 - when he was in Fresno. His position as secretary and bookkeeper is a responsible one and he has so efficiently discharged his duties as to win the confidence and respect of his official associates.

Mr. Dutra was married to Miss Emma F. Rose, the daughter of Manuel and Frances Rose, natives of the Azores Islands, but who came to Kings county many years ago, where Mrs. Dutra was born. Mr. and Mrs. Dutra have a daughter: Frances Louise. Mrs. Dutra is a lady of charming personality and is a past supreme president of the S. P. P. S. I., and secretary of the local council of that order. Mr. and Mrs. Dutra live in an attractive and comfortable home at No. 425 West Florinda street, Hanford. They are a genial and hospitable couple and are extremely popular in the circles in which they move.
