Biographical Sketch of Mrs. Henry C. Finkler

Prominent in the club life of the county and the State is Mrs. Henry C. Finkler, president of the Redwood City Woman’s Club. Although one of the most active club-women of the county, Mrs. Finkler has devoted her energies to many other good causes which has placed her in the front rank of the county’s leading women.

Mrs. Finkler has lived in California almost all her life. The last eight years she has spent in Redwood City. Her first work after taking up her new place of residence was to take a leading part in the organization of the Redwood City Woman’s Club. Since then no woman has been more active in the affairs of the club than Mrs. Finkler. As an appreciation of her work and efforts the members elected her president of the organization last year.

Mrs. Finkler holds a high place in State clubdom, one of her most important connections being auditor for one term of the San Francisco District of the California Federation of Women’s Clubs.

Few citizens have contributed more time and energy to Redwood City than Mrs. Finkler. Credit is due her for the annual May festival, famed throughout California. As an expression of Redwood City’s gratitude to Mrs. Finkler for this work, the Board of Trade and the Floral Festival Committee presented Mrs. Finkler with a gold and silver loving cup. The Board of Trade has sent Mrs. Finkler to represent Redwood at several conventions.

In addition to her club affiliations, Mrs. Finkler is a member of the George F. Evans Relief Corps and the Red Cross Society.
