ARTHUR STEINBERG.
Arthur Steinberg, manager of the popular Pioneer Hotel in Porterville and widely known in hotel circles and among the traveling public throughout this section of the state, is a native son of California and has been a resident of this state all his life. Mr. Steinberg, who is better known among his friends as "Art" Steinberg, was born in the city of San Francisco, May 1, 1881, and is a son of John and Hannah (Anderson) Steinberg, both of whom were born in the kingdom of Sweden. John Steinberg was a trained and skilled cabinetmaker who became a resident of San Francisco in the '70s and who was long actively engaged in working at his trade in that city.

Reared in San Francisco, Arthur Steinberg acquired his education in the schools of that city, attending variously the Lincoln, the Columbia and the Hearst schools, and as a young man engaged in clerical work in various commercial establishments about town. In 1912 he became employed as clerk in the Cadillac Hotel in San Francisco, at that time conducted by Robert Kendall, present proprietor of the Pioneer Hotel in Porterville, and in 1915 became clerk in the Terminal Hotel in that city. When in 1916 Mr. Kendall transferred his activities in the hotel line to Porterville, Mr. Steinberg accompanied him and has ever since been connected with those activities, and is now the manager of the Pioneer Hotel, which is recognized as one of the best conducted and most popular hotels in this section of California, as is set out elsewhere in this work.

On December 7, 1918, in Porterville, Arthur Steinberg was united in marriage to Miss Laketta M. Williamson, who was born in the village of Lakeside, in Sheridan county, Nebraska, daughter of Leonard N. and Margarette (Bates) Williamson, and who has been a resident of California since 1904. To Mr. and Mrs. Steinberg two children have been born: A son, Mark Steinberg, born November 3, 1919; and a daughter, Norma, born October 17, 1920. Mr. Steinberg is a Royal Arch and Knights Templar Mason, affiliated with Porterville Lodge, No. 303, F. & A. M.; and also the chapter at Porterville; and with San Francisco Commandery, Knights Templars at San Francisco.
