Forty Years of Community Service The Story of Karl Hoblitzelle and the development of Interstate Theatres, by Don Hinga
Padded Hard Cover
Copyright 1946
25 pgs
Privately Printed Limited Edition
Foreword:
To know Karl Hoblitzelle is to love him.
During his lifetime, he has been interested in scores of activities outside the scope of our company, and has been associated with hundreds of people in the course of these activities.
We, who have been privileged to work side by side with him through the years and have enjoyed the inspiration of observing the myriad facets of his personality and character, feel that those who have known him more slightly than we, would like to know more about him.
Toward this end, this book was written.
Modest by nature, Karl Hoblitzelle speaks of himself and his achievements with reluctance, so that it was necessary to compile the information contained here from many sources - his business associates of earlier years, his family and his old friends.
Many incidents have come to light that even we who have known him intimately had no knowledge of. I am sure that the reader will find among these pages references that will increase his affection and regard for Karl Hoblitzelle.
R. J. O'DONNELL General Manager
INTERSTATE THEATRES
Author's Note:
The author of this small volume has been in newspaper work in Texas for nearly a quarter of a century.
During these years I have had an opportunity to see Interstate Theatres grow from a small circuit to one of the major theatre firms in the nation.
And during all that time I saw the firm foundation on which it was built-clean, wholesome entertainment for entire families and unselfish public service.
And so it was when Interstate's 40th anniversary year rolled around I felt particularly honored to be approached by R. J. O'Donnell, general manager of Interstate and other executives, with the idea that I compile a brief record as a tribute to Karl Hoblitzelle.
But you cannot compile a brief record on Karl Hoblitzelle's contribution to the growth of the state. Weeks of research unearthed such a multitude of interesting information that the book, like Topsy, just grew and grew and soon I had a major volume on my hands.
It was with great difficulty that I condensed his varied life into this volume.
I feel a deep sense of pride and appreciation for having been afforded this opportunity to add my small tribute to Karl Hoblitzelle and the fine citizenship he typifies.
