R. G. EINFALT
GILROY CRESCENT PUBLISHER
The Gilroy Crescent was established in January, 1888, by R. G. Einfalt. It started prosperously from the first and has maintained its position ever since. It is well conducted and thoroughly meets the demands of its patrons, as its increasing business well proves. Mr. Einfalt, its publisher, is a native son of the Golden West, having been born at Weaverville, Trinity County, California, October 23, 1866. His parents were J. M. and E. J. (Smith) Einfalt. His father is a native of Germany and his mother of Missouri, her parents having emigrated from Virginia to that State. In 1868, when Mr. Einfalt was only two years old, his parents removed to Gilroy, and the subject of this sketch grew up with the city.
During his course
at the Gilroy High School, he suspended his studies and went into the office of
the Valley Record, in 1883, where he remained two years and a half. He
then returned to school and completed the course, graduating with honor. During
his connection with the Valley Record he developed great journalistic
ability, and, on leaving school, established the Crescent. He is a
member of the Gilroy Parlor N. S. G. W., of which he is secretary. Although a
young man, he is greatly respected, both on account of his worth as a citizen
and his ability as a journalist.
