During his boyhood and youth in Stockton, Allin L. Rhodes attended the public schools, but took his professional education in the University of Michigan, where he was graduated in the law course with the degree LL.B. After his admission to the bar he practiced at Stockton until a break down in health in 1897 compelled him to abandon his profession there. After two years of recuperation among the Sierras with refreshed energies he resumed his career at Los Angeles in the fall of 1899, and the following spring entered the legal department of the Title Abstract & Trust Company and about six months later took the general management of its affairs.
In August, 1913 those in touch with Los Angeles business will recall the consolidation of this company with the Los Angeles Title Insurance Company, under the latter name, with Mr. Rhodes as general manager and director, the offices he holds today. In January, 1914 the company also absorbed the Los Angeles Title & Trust Company, giving it unrivaled facilities. The business of the company has assumed such proportions that it has recently, as shown by the reports issued by the Insurance Departments of the various States, been handling a greater volume of title business than any other company in America engaged in the title insurance business exclusively.
