Biographical Sketch of Stephen Edward Throwell

Stephen Edward Throwell is one of San Mateo county’s citizens who testifies to his loyalty by having lived here from the time of his birth. Born here 45 years ago Mr. Throwell has turned a deaf ear to flattering offers to leave his native home, and preferred to stake his lot with this community.

Mr. Throwell is one of Lomita Park’s energetic residents. When this district was covered with large ranches, and the few residents were the inhabitants of the houses on those large undivided tracts, Mr. Throwell saw a future in the present Lomita Park where the man of moderate means could enjoy all the charms of country life. The doubled tracks of the Southern Pacific, the electric cars from San Francisco, and the paved highway are all predictions Mr. Throwell made for Lomita Park years ago.

In addition to the interest taken by Mr. Throwell in all the civic and public movements in the last twenty years, he has served the people in several capacities. He is a member of the Board of Health of the city of San Mateo, a member of the Board of Trustees of the Millbrae district and sanitary inspector of the cities of Burlingame and San Mateo. In this office he has installed a system of sanitary inspection that is unrivaled in any small community.

Stephen Edward Throwell was born in San Mateo County. In addition to being manager of the Lomita Park Water Works, he is engaged in a general real estate and insurance business. Mr. Throwell is a member of San Mateo lodge, No. 1112, B. P. O. Elks.
