WILLIAM L. WALTON, merchandise broker, of Pittsburg, was born in Pittsburg in 1864, and there reared and educated
in the public schools. When seventeen years old, he left school and went to work for his uncle, James McClurg,
a crockery manufacturer, remaining in his employ eight years. At the end of that time he started in at his present
business, and has devoted his attention to it continuously ever since. He is also engaged in the real estate and
insurance business with offices in the Smith building, Pittsburg, under the firm name of Braun, Walton & Euwer.
In his professional life he has been as honorable in his dealings as he has been successful. Says a friend, in
speaking of Mr. Walton: "He is a successful business man and a manly fellow, whose character is above reproach."
Mr. Walton is an enthusiastic member of the Masonic fraternity, in which he has attained the thirty second degree,
and is a Shriner, a member of the I. O. O. F., American Mechanics, Heptasophs and Royal Arcanum. In religious belief
he is a Presbyterian.
