- Paul Rosenberg
The spirit of civic duty which has been so marked in the City and County of San Francisco during the past generations has brought to the front many able, earnest, and patriotic sons of California with laudable ambition to honorably fill positions of public trust and place San Francisco among the foremost of the progressive cities of the nation and among the most prominent of these is Mr. Paul Rosenberg. Few are the men in the municipal affairs of San Francisco who have made such a splendid record as he and certainly there is none more worthy of complementary notice than he. Mr. Rosenberg is a fine specimen of manhood, standing six feet in his stockings and weighing 175 pounds. His health is perfect and as a result his brain is clear, which enables him to think correctly and act vigorously and morally in the performance of his duties. As he has been quoted, his life has not been eventful, nor has it been given to accidents or notable enterprises; he has said that moderation has always been the controlling tone in his career. Being an eloquent speaker, a man of inexhaustible energy, and having over the course of four decades exercising his profession, it is no vain boast to make that he has become one of the leading men of America, politically, professionally, and in general public affairs. By his ability as a speaker, and logical explanation of the facts, he is capable of swaying the opinions of an audience to a marked degree. The material make-up of this man is that which made rulers in years gone by.
