Frank Clair Wyckoff is one of the many newcomers in Burlingame who has been attracted by the splendid opportunities that the rapid development of that town offers. Although Mr. Wyckoff came to Burlingame as a stranger just a year ago, he has risen to a high place in the esteem of his fellow business men and has established one of the most up-to-date undertaking and embalming establishments on the peninsula.

Mr. Wyckoff is a native son, having been born in Sierra Valley, near Sierraville, Sierra County on June 1, 1872. After completing his education, he tried rubbing shoulders with the world in other parts of the country but returned to his native state in 1890 to become associated with the California Casket Company of San Francisco. He was with this company for nearly twenty-five years, ad-vancing from an inconsequential place to the responsible position of office manager.

A year ago Mr. Wyckoff saw the reawakening of the peninsula and at the same time succumbed to the lure of being in business for himself. As a result he resigned his position with the California Casket Company and established an undertaking business in Burlingame.

Besides his undertaking business in Burlingame, Mr. Wyckoff is an accountant and has charge of the bookkeeping for a large peninsula concern.

Mr. Wyckoff is a member of the Elks and the Masons. He also belongs to the Burlingame Commercial Club and the San Mateo and Burlingame Merchants’ Association.
