Edward Rucker Dixon
One of the most popular young men in the banking circles of San Mateo is Edward Rucker Dixon, who was born at Merced, California, March 21, 1883. After leaving high school, he secured a position with the bank of Newman, California, where he remained for twelve years, serving faithfully in every branch of the banking business. It is partly due to his efforts that this bank has been developed to one of the most influential banks of the great San Joaquin valley.
Mr. Dixon came to the National Bank of San Mateo, January 10, 1916, to fill the position of cashier, being selected from a large list of applicants. In the selection of Mr. Dixon as cashier, the National Bank of San Mateo feels that it has added another good asset to the city of San Mateo as well as to its working organization.
Mr. Dixon is fraternally connected with the B. P. O. Elks, F. & A. M., and Knight Templar lodges.
