Monterey County: Biographies


Louis G. Beverino, the manager of the San Francisco International Fish Company, with headquarters on the Santa Cruz City Wharf, was born in this old seaside town, October 24, 1892, his parents being Luigi and Delphino Casto Beverino. When only thirty-five years of age, the father came to California in 1888, and settled first in San Francisco but later came to Santa Cruz. Previous to his coming to America, he was a seafaring man, sailing on English ships but after settling here he engaged in fishing and so continued until his death. His market on the old Cowles wharf was long one of the Santa Cruz landmarks. He died in June, 1924, highly respected by all who knew him.

Louis G. Beverino was registered at the Santa Cruz public schools, and as a boy worked with his father in the fish market. After five years of this apprenticeship, he decided to open a wholesale fish business for himself, but at the end of six years he sold out to the company he now represents, becoming their local manager, with office on the city wharf. Doubtless Mr. Beverino's own success has led to his appreciation of the locality and his enthusiasm in advancing Santa Cruz interests in every way.

On the 1st of January, 1916, Mr. Beverino was united in marriage to Miss Ernestine Ray Manildi, a native daughter of Santa Cruz and one child has been born to them: Louis George, Jr.
