William A. Lambert is an active factor in the operations of the great Pioneer Fruit Company of San Francisco, being manager of the affairs of that company in the district comprised within the counties of Solano, Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake. When Mr. Lambert took over the duties of this responsible position in 1917 his district stood fourteenth on the company's books, while it now occupies first place, the confidence placed in his efficiency and executive ability thus having been amply justified.

Mr. Lambert is a native of California and he has always resided here. He was born on his father's ranch in the Suisun valley, July 9, 1892, and is a son of W. H. and Emma (Chadbourne) Lambert, both of whom also were born in this valley, of pioneer families. Reared on the home place, William A. Lambert completed his education in the Santa Rosa high school, and he has since been actively identified with the deciduous fruit industry throughout this region. In 1917, as noted above, he entered upon the duties of his present position. In 1923 he handled no fewer than one thousand cars of deciduous fruit, a record which topped that of all others in the packing industry in California and which give him a state-wide reputation among growers and shippers. Mr. Lambert has a fine orchard of his own, being the proprietor of a tract of twenty-five acres near Fairfield, on which he raises apricots and peaches. He has made a wonderful record for himself and has a wide acquaintance throughout this section.

Mr. Lambert was united in marriage to Miss Bertha E. Badon, who was born in Solano county, and they have two children, Jane Doris and William A., Jr. Mr. Lambert is a member of the lodge of the Knights of Pythias at Suisun and is also affiliated with the lodge of the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks at Vallejo.
