WEBB H. PARKINSON  (Here is a short bio I found in my research)

Energetic young brokers have done much to make Goldfield the best known mining camp in the world today. Among these are few more energetic than Webb H. Parkinson, who operates the Goldfield Investment Company. Webb Parkinson came to Goldfield first in 1904, and at that time the pick and the pan were his implements of trade. He came on a prospecting trip and had little idea of entering the brokerage business. He was born in Fort Worth Texas, but spent his boyhood days in Colorado, so he was early associated with mining. While he was too young to work, he watched the miners and listened to their gold-hunting stories. When he was fifteen he went into the mines and he worked through Colorado, Wyoming and New Mexico until he went to Goldfield.

In the fall of 1905 he decided to give up manual labor, and looked around for a wedge by which he might break into the brokerage business. The Goldfield Investment Company was the result, and though in the beginning Mr. Parkinson was not the whole company he soon became so. He was one of the most energetic traders on the exchange and he has been one of the combatants in many memorable word battles on the floor. He holds the controlling interest in the Florence Extension, Black Butte Bonanza, Goldfield Midnight Pawnee, the Ruby Gold Mining Company and the George Washington. He has branch offices in San Francisco, Stockton, Chicago, Los Angeles and New York. He is a director in the Goldfield Mining Exchange and also holds a seat on the San Francisco Exchange.
