Solano County

The fruit interests of the Suisun valley are of great importance to the prosperity of the locality, and concerted and cooperative efforts are enabling the orchardists to realize better returns than if each acted independently. The Suisun Valley Fruit Growers Association has been of great benefit to the entire valley and its success has been largely due to the energy, discretion and ability of its manager, Fred L. Kulper. Mr. Kulper was born in Sacramento county, California, on the 30th of October, 1895, and is a son of Henry and Ella (Griffin) Kulper, both of whom are living. His father has been a resident of California since 1870, while his mother, who was born and reared in Boston, Massachusetts, came to this state in 1861.

Fred L. Kulper attended the public schools of his native county and subsequently took a course in the State Agricultural College at Davis. During the ensuing two years he was engaged in farming in Glenn county, this state, and he then enlisted in the United States navy for service during the World war. He was commissioned a line officer on transports and remained actively identified with this important branch of the war service until the close of hostilities, when he was honorably discharged and returned home. In 1921 Mr. Kulper became connected with the California Fruit Exchange and is now the manager of the Suisun Valley Fruit Growers Association, in which capacity he is making a splendid record in the conservation of the interests of the members of the organization.

Mr. Kulper was married to Miss Rena Myers, who is a member of a prominent old pioneer family of Sacramento county. He is a man of fine habits, sterling integrity and unremitting energy and is devoting himself closely to the interests of the people with whom he is associated.
