was in 1901 that this successful lawyer came to Sacramento, and the
admirable career that he has since made has brought him the
congratulations of a wide circle of acquaintances. Aaron B. Reynolds was
born in Fort Jones, Cal, July 28, 1878, a son of Isaac and Clara (Barr)
Reynolds, pioneers of Siskiyou county. He attended the public school and
the Siskiyou county high school and was graduated from the latter in
1898. He then entered the University of Michigan, at Ann Arbor, where he
was graduated with the degree of LL. B. in 1901.
immediately after leaving college Mr. Reynolds came to Sacramento and
was admitted to practice at the bar of the supreme court and of the
lesser courts. He entered at once upon the active practice of his
profession, and has appeared in several cases of note which are a part
of the judicial history of the county and the state. In all of these, as
well as in many less important cases, he has been very successful, not
necessarily winning all of them, but accomplishing in all of them all
that it was reasonably possible for any lawyer to achieve. His
clientele, now large, is constantly widening, and as the years pass
matters of greater and still greater import are entrusted to him.. His
advice is sought not alone by those who seek litigation, but by wise and
careful men who would avoid it, and, once given, it is found to be sound
and based on the true fundamental principles of the law.
His birth within the borders of California made Mr. Reynolds eligible to membership in the Native Sons of the Golden West, an organization in which he is deeply interested and which he advances by every means at his command. He preserves college memories by affiliation with the University club. In politics he is independent. He married, at Sacramento, February 8, 1905, Miss Beryl Patrick, and they have a daughter, Beth, now six years old.
