Biographical Sketch of Dr. Archie Leonard Offield

From years of practice in this county Dr. A. L. Offield of Burlingame is one of its oldest physicians. He gave up a large practice in San Francisco to come to Burlingame nine years ago. At that time Burlingame was one of the smallest towns on the peninsula but its growth bears out the predictions that Dr. Offield made for it at that time.

Dr. Offield is a member of the Burlingame Board of Health which has given Burlingame one of the best health departments of any municipality on the peninsula. The activity of the health board is apparent in Burlingame’s sanitary conditions and general state of cleanliness which have made it one of the healthiest cities in the state.

Dr. Offield has built up a large practice in Burlingame, San Mateo and Hillsborough.

Dr. Offield demonstrated his faith in Burlingame’s future by erecting a handsome business building on Burlingame avenue. At the time Dr. Offield built his building it was on the outskirts of the business district but Burlingame’s business district is growing at such a rate that the Offield block will soon be engulfed by similar buildings.

Dr. Archie Leonard Offield was born in Oregon City on June 3, 1877. He has been a resident of California for twenty-seven years. Dr. Offield was married in San Francisco on July, 9, 1908. He belongs to the Burlingame Commercial Club, San Mateo Elks and the Burlingame Masons.
