Linton Morgan is a well known and well established realtor of Vallejo and is police judge in and for that city, as well as local representative of the federal government in the operation of the affairs of the housing corporation. He is a native of Idaho and was reared in the state of Arizona, where he obtained his initial schooling, and he is a resident of California by choice and inclination, having found conditions here very much to his liking. Mr. Morgan was born in Preston, Idaho, September 21, 1890, and is a son of John and Mary (Linton) Morgan, the former of whom, now deceased, was for many years a prominent figure in educational circles in that state and in Utah.

Linton Morgan went to Washington, D. C, when he was about twenty years of age, and there he attended the Georgetown University and later the George Washington Law School. He early became trained for secretarial service and was for some time engaged in Washington as assistant secretary to United States Senator Wolcott of Delaware. Later he was attached to the staff of the secretary of labor and in that department of the federal government's activities rendered service as an assistant to the secretary until 1920, when he was sent to Vallejo as the representative of the department and was made manager of the housing corporation's operations here, a position he still occupies. Upon taking up his residence here Mr. Morgan also embarked in the local realty business and has built up a flourishing connection along that line. In 1925 he was appointed to act as city judge, and he is thus now serving in a dual public capacity.

In 1917, at Salt Lake City, Utah, Linton Morgan was united in marriage to Miss Eudora Eggertsen of that state, and they have three children, Dixie, Meline, and John W. Mr. Morgan is a democrat and is an active and influential member of the Vallejo Kiwanis Club. He also is affiliated with the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks, the Improved Order of Red Men and the Fraternal Order of Eagles.
