C. L. Dick Dried Fruit

The W. T. Jenks Company was a dried fruit packer in existence in at least 1930. Jenks was a packer in Oregon and manager of the Willamette Valley Growers Association; the November 16, 1918 California Fruit News describes large orders from Britain. The San Jose packing house must have been an expansion into the Santa Clara Valley.

Charles Lewis Dick was the manager in 1929; by 1930, he had taken over the plant. He operated it as C. L. Dick Dried Fruit.
