S. Z. HEBERT is a native of San Francisco, where he was born on the twelfth day of October, 1862. When he was nine years of age he came, with his parents, to this county. He first attended school at St. Mary's in San Francisco, then the Sacred Heart School and St. Ignatius College, of that city, and later he attended the Santa Clara College, where he completed his literary education in 1877, and began a course at the Pacific Business College of San Francisco, but, owing to a severe illness, he was obliged to give up his studies and return to his home, at Salinas City. He is possessed of much natural business ability, and is one of the representative young men of the county. He is Treasurer of Santa Lucia Parlor, No. 97, N. S. G. W., and has been Treasurer of the Democratic County Central Committee four years, which office he still holds, and in this capacity has taken an active interest in politics. Mr. Hebert owns $50,000 worth of country real estate near Salinas City, and all of his efforts are directed towards the best interests of the county. He is engaged in the grain-buying business, and in this, as well as in the management of his property interests, he has shown the discretion and judgment of an older head, and is now rated among the prosperous and solid men of the county.
