Final Rites Held For C. M. Chase, Author, Publisher
Funeral service was held last Saturday, January 4, in San Francisco, for J. Munsell Chase, followed by cremation at Olivet Memorial Park. He passed away last Wednesday in a hospital here at 81 years of age. Death followed a fall at his home in Tamalpais Canyon near Mill Valley, in which he injured his spine, but he had been in ill health for some time, and death was not unexpected.
Chase was a native of Minnesota, but had lived in San Francisco most of his life, with the exception of the past few years in Mill Valley.
He leaves his wife, Mrs. Mary Chase; four daughters, one of whom, Mrs. J. Heller, lives in Mill Valley, three sons and two brothers.
Chase’s early life was spent as a publisher of hotel papers. He is also author of a number of books and articles.
