THE HISTORY OF SANTA CLARA COUNTY 1233
A. F. BROSIUS
"The Loose Leaf House"
Bookbinders of San Jose
Among the leading business houses of San Jose, Cal., is listed A.F. Brosius and Company and "The Loose Leaf House" bookbinders, the present owner and proprietor being A.F. Brosius. This business was established in 1890 by his father, who came to San Jose when our subject was only eight years of age. Taking advantage of the educational privileges afforded in the public schools of San Jose, he received a fair training that he was entirely competent to take up his father's work, and so continued the business. His shop is one of the most modern in equipment and he has always given the very best of service in the way of workmanship, having in his employ four men and four women well-trained in this line of work. He is very well known and people are still better acquainted with his work and for that reason, he receives the greater part of the work in this section.
The growth of modern business systems, applicable even to the smallest concerns, has added an immense volume to the loose leaf business, and the excellent work turned out by Mr. Brosius has given "The Loose Leaf House" its full share in this growing line.
Mr. Brosius is very popular in both social and business circles of San Jose, being an active member of the Chamber of Commerce, and also a member of the Observatory Parlor of the Native Sons of the Golden West. He is a member of the Masonic Lodge and the B.P.O. Elks. He takes great pleasure in hunting and fishing, being very fond of outdoor recreation.
