HOMER B. PERCY
Biography

Homer B. Percy, a veteran of the World war, manager of the Solano County Adjustment Company of Vallejo and one of the best known young men in this county, an active figure in local commercial circles, was born in the village of Sandstone on the line of the Great Northern Railroad in Pine county, eastern Minnesota, July 3, 1900, and was seven years of age when in 1907 he came with his parents to California, the family locating at Santa Rosa. He thus finished his public schooling in the Santa Rosa schools, supplementing this by a year in the College of the Pacific at Santa Clara, and then became engaged in the operations of the state engineer's department, a member of the survey staff, and was thus engaged when this country entered the World war in 1917. In the next year, at the age of eighteen, he enlisted his services in behalf of the nation's arms and was entered in the officers training school at Camp Fremont, where he was in service for six months or until after the close of the war.

Upon the completion of his military service Mr. Percy was for some time engaged as a salesman in San Francisco and then, in Max- 1922, he organized the Solano County Adjustment Company of Vallejo and has since been quite successfully thus engaged, in general charge of that company's affairs. This company makes a specialty of commercial collections and the adjustment of credits, its field of operations being confined to Solano and Napa counties, and has become well established along that line, not only filling a distinct field but a "long felt want;" creating a service that has come to be recognized as of special value in the local commercial world.

On Nov. 27, 1924, at Vallejo, Homer B. Percy was united in marriage to Miss Charlotte Paulson, who was born in that city, and they have a pleasant home at Vallejo. Mr. Percy is a member of the local post of the American Legion and is also an active member of the locally influential Vallejo Rotary Club, one of the most enthusiastic town "boosters" in that useful and representative organization.
