Mr. Wolff came to this country from Germany in 1911, and for many years was a stockbroker in San Francisco. In the years between 1911 and 1926, however, he held a variety of jobs, one of which was as a timekeeper for the Cowell Company's Santa Cruz ranch. Mr. Wolff was interviewed about the ranch at that time. He also commented on S.H. Cowell and some of the Cowell Company's employees.
