    Biographies of San Bernardino County and Riverside County



    LEON ARNOLD ATWOOD — is a son of George A. Atwood, whose achievements as a developer of the famous Yucaipa Valley have been described on other pages of this publication. L. A. Atwood was born in the Yucaipa Valley and since early manhood has been actively associated with the productive interests of that section, and is one of San Bernardino's prominent men of business and a civic leader as well.

    He was born at Yucaipa, November 19, 1886, son of George A. and Alice R. Atwood. As a boy he attended the city schools of San Bernardino, and had planned a university career at the University of Michigan. A few days before he was to enter college he married, and with the responsibility of a family he turned at once to the serious business of life and, moving to Yucaipa, took up apple growing and farming. Mr. Atwood put out the first packed apples in the Yucaipa Valley. The first year he packed about five hundred boxes, and since then the output has increased to fifteen thousand boxes. With his father, G. A. Atwood, he owns the largest holdings in that fruitful valley. Besides apple orchards he has a twenty-acre orange grove in the Rialto District and San Bernardino city property.

    At the outbreak of the World War L. A. Atwood was appointed chief of the American Protective League for San Bernardino County. This League did the secret service work for the Government, and over the country at large it was one of the most effective instruments of the Department of Justice. Later Mr. Atwood was appointed special agent for the Department of Justice in charge of Riverside, Inyo and San Bernardino counties, with office at San Bernardino. In this work his duties took him to many western states, as far south and east as Texas.

    Mr. Atwood is president of the Better City Club of San Bernardino, and in that capacity conducted the last city campaign resulting in the election of McNabb for mayor. He is a republican in national politics, is a member of the Native Sons of the Golden West, the Elks, the Y. M. C. A., is a charter member and director of the Newport Harbor Yacht Club, and is president of the Delta Duck Club, which owns extensive holdings and a club house near Salton Sea in the Imperial Valley. Mr. Atwood is a member of the Presbyterian Church.

    November 11, 1908, at San Bernardino, he married Miss Frances Alma Hooper, who was born at Colton, California, one of the four children of W. S. Hooper. Her father for many years, until his death, was well known as cashier of the San Bernardino National Bank. Her brother, Stanford C. Hooper, is now a commander in the United States Navy, attached to the Navy Board at Washington, D. C. Mr. and Mrs. Atwood have three children: Leon Arnold, Jr., Frances Mary and Stanford William.
