C.R. Klein - Santa Monica, CA

Carl Rudolph Klein was born in Germany on May 21, 1881. The Los Angles, CA city directories in the 1930's through the 1950's list his occupation as a Machinist. While running his machine shop, he received patents on a gasoline engine, a spear gun and a fishing reel. He received the patent for his fishing reel on August 8, 1939. His expertise and engineering knowledge are manifest in the reels he produced. He made reels that varied from a 4/0 size reel up to a 12/0 size. Some of his reels are set in a cradle configuration. His reels are collectable. Carl died on May 26, 1956 in Los Angles, CA.
