Download PDF for this date

San Francisco financiers and stock brokers wended their way today to the offices of the dean of the financial district, Isaac Strassburger, on the occasion of his eighty-third birthday.

Sixty-eight years ago he came to San Francisco from Germany and found work in a drygoods store. Today he celebrated his birthday in the building that bears his name. The brokerage house of Strassburger & Co., which he founded in 1880, now is carried on by his son Lawrence.
