Arthur Lindauer of the law firm of Lindauer & Horan at Vallejo, former district attorney and one of the best known lawyers in this section of California, and actively identified with the civic and social life of the community, is a native son of California and all his life has been spent in this state, a resident of Vallejo since the days of his boyhood. Mr. Lindauer was born in the city of San Francisco on September 7, 1884, and is a son of Arthur and Julia (Braun) Lindauer, the latter of whom is still living, a resident of Vallejo for many years. The senior Arthur Lindauer, who was a native of Virginia, died at San Francisco in the late '80s and his widow afterward moved to Vallejo with her family. She was born in Chicago, Illinois.

Having been but a child when he became a resident of Vallejo, the junior Arthur Lindauer received his schooling in the schools of that city and when fifteen years of age began to learn the trade of tinsmith, working in the shops at the Mare Island navy yards. Upon learning the trade he continued working at that vocation for ten years, meanwhile pursuing his studies under private tutelage and after a while began to give his thoughtful attention to the study of law. Mr. Lindauer completed his law studies in the office of Philip B. Lynch at Vallejo and under that preceptorship was prepared for admission to the bar, and in 1911 was admitted to the bar and has since been engaged in practice at Vallejo. In 1923 he entered into a partnership in practice with Thomas J. Horan, under the firm name of Lindauer & Horan, and that mutually agreeable arrangement has been continued, the firm having present offices in the Horan building on Marin street. Mr. Lindauer is a republican and for eight years served the public as district attorney for this judicial district. Prior to that he had rendered further public service as justice of the peace. He has a flourishing practice, has substantial interests developed along other lines, is an active member of the Solano County Bar Association and of the California State Bar Association and has a wide acquaintance in the profession throughout the state. He finds his recreation in the enjoyment of out door sports and is an ardent "fan" of both baseball and football.

In 1904, at Vallejo, Arthur Lindauer was united in marriage to Miss Mabel Thompson and they have one child, a daughter, Mabel June.

Mrs. Lindauer was born in Indiana, daughter of Daniel Thompson, but was reared in California and thus feels herself as much a Californian as any. The Lindauers have a pleasant home in Vallejo and Mr. and Mrs. Lindauer take a proper and interested part in the general social and cultural activities of the community. Mr. Lindauer for years has been active in local Masonic circles and is a past worshipful master of Naval Lodge No. 87, Free and Accepted Masons, at Vallejo. He is a past president of the local aerie of the Fraternal Order of Eagles and is also affiliated with the local lodges of the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks and the Improved Order of Red Men. He has ever taken a deep interest in general development work here and has long been recognized as one of the substantial promoters of the community's best interests along all lines of proper endeavor.
