Excerpt from San Francisco, Vol. 2: Its Builders, Past and Present; Pictorial and Biographical

Julius Kahn, lawyer and congressman, is a man of versatile talents who may well be termed one of ' the most popular men in San Francisco and whose prominence in state and national life has been indicated in countless ways. The record of his service as representative of this district in the national lower house is one of rare accomplishment, especially in behalf of his constituency and their immense and varied interests.

Mr. Kahn is a native of Germany, but has lived all but five years of Ills life in this country, and in California. He was born at Kupenheim, grand duchy of Baden, February 28, 1861, the eldest child of Herman and Jeaneatte (Weil) Kahn. His father was born and reared in Germany and came to America in 1865, locating in Calaveras county, California, at Mokelumne Hill. In 1866, Mrs. Kahn followed him to this country, bringing their children. Later the family removed to San Francisco.

Julius Kahn received his education in the public schools of Mokelumne Hill district in Calaveras county and later in the public and high schools of this city. At the age of sixteen years he left school and went to work in a clerical capacity in a commission house. After two years he decided to go on the stage and followed that profession for eleven years, being associated with such noted players as Edwin Booth, Joseph Jefferson, Tomaso Salvini, Clara Morris and Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Florence and many others of fame.

In 1890 Mr. Kahn decided to begin the study of law, and leaving the stage, he pursued his studies until he was admitted to the bar in 1894 He became successful and has since held high rank as a practitioner. While still a student of the law Mr. Kahn became active in public life, being elected as a republican to the state assembly in 1892. After serving one term he declined the nomination for the state senate, preferring to continue his law practice and contribute his share in the upbuilding of the city and the commonwealth as a private citizen. He was prominent, however, in civic and promotional movements and was actively connected with the Midwinter Fair, being secretary of the finance committee.
