1907: “DEATH OF J. A. HERTZMAN. Well-Known Resident of Portland Passes Away After Long Illness.
John A. Hertzman, formerly bookkeeper for the First National Bank, and a well-known resident of Portland, died last night at 7 o’clock at the residence of H. L. Pittock, corner of Washington and West Park streets. Mr. Hertzman had been afflicted with tuberculosis for the past four years. He spent most of that time in Southern California and Arizona, where it was hoped the dry climate would effect a cure. This hope proved vain, however, and it was realized that the disease had progressed too far to admit of recovery.
Mr. and Mrs. Hertzman returned to Portland three weeks ago from San Diego, in company with H. L. Pittock. Mrs. Hertzman, a daughter of Mr. Pittock, and members of the Pittock family were at his side when he died.
Mr. Hertzman came to Portland in 1886. He occupied a position with the O. R. & N. Co. for a time and later became bookkeeper for the First National Bank. He was 39 years old at the time of his death, and was born in Sweden. His wife and a sister, Mrs. Wellander, of Newport, are the only surviving relatives in the state. The funeral will occur from the Pittock residence on Wednesday. The time has not been fixed, pending notice of the time of arrival in the city of Mrs. Wellander. Interment will be in Riverview Cemetery Mr. Hertzman was well known in Portland and had many friends who will learn of his death with keen regret. He was known as a capable business man, and his taking away while in the prime of life is being widely mourned. His unfortunate malady was contracted as the result of a severe cold, which turned into la grippe and developed into consumption.” Morning Oregonian, June 18, 1907, pg. 9, col. 2
