Mr. Anthony B. Thomas, one of the leading druggists of San Leandro and also a three-term city coucilman, is of Portuguese descent. His father, a whaler who was born on the Flores Island of the Azores, and his mother came to the United States and settled in Provincetown, Massachusetts eighty-five years ago. In 1882 the entire family came overland to the East Bay area and established their home in San Leandro which was fast becoming a thriving Portuguese community. Mr. Thomas' father wanted him to be a whaler, but after finishing high school, he decided that he would prefer to be a druggist and studied to that purpose. The people of San Leandro, in recognition of his ability as a leader, have elected him three times a member of the five-man council board. Mr. Thomas says, "We are all Americans now and I am proud to be part of a democratic government and always want to do my share on any democratic government and planning board."
