N. Loyall McLaren:
Private funeral services were held yesterday for N. Loyall McLaren, a prominent Bay Area Business man and past president of both the Bohemian Club and the Pacific Union Club.
Mr. McLaren died Sunday at his Greenbrae home at the age of 85.
A native of San Francisco and a graduate in 1914 of the University of California at Berkeley, he joined the public accounting firm of McLaren, Goode and Co., which had been founded by his father, and became a partner in 1920.
At his retirement in 1958, he was a partner in Raskins & Sells, international public accounting
firm, which merged with his father's company in 1952.
A former president of the California Society of Certified Public Accountants and later the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, Mr. McLaren also found time to co-author two books, "California Tax Laws" and "Income Tax Management for Individuals." He was also the author of "Annual Reports to Stockholders."
After serving during World War II as a captain with the Navy price adjustment board in New
York, he returned to San Francisco as treasurer of the United Nations Conference Committee.
During his long business career, he was also board chairman of The Irvine Co. and a former director of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway, the Pacific Telephone Co., Rheem Manufacturing, Co. and Air California. He also
served as a director of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.
Among his many civic contributions, Mr. McLaren was an executive committee member for eight years with the San Francisco Community Chest, a regent emeritus of the University of San Francisco and chairman of the California State Harbor Commission.
He served as president of the Bohemian Club from 1951 to 1953 and headed the Pacific Union Club in 1948.
He is survived by his wife, Mary; two sons, Kenneth and Thomas; two stepdaughters, Mary Menzies and Jean Wickwire Jr., and three grandchildren.
The family prefers that memorial donations be sent to a favorite charity.
