Edward ("Ned") Eichler

Ned Eidhler with his wife Ava at the LAHHS dinner, June 8, 2011.

Ned Eichler, our guest speaker at the first annual Los Altos Hills Historical Society dinner, has had a long and varied career: student, laborer, building executive, scholar, raconteur; and others besides.

After graduating from Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire, he was Head of Purchasing at Eichler Homes, the landmark suburban construction business founded by his father, Joseph Eichler.

After serving in the United States Army Signal Corps in Germany and France - the experience tempted him to remain in Paris pursuing La Vie Bohème - he returned to working for Eichler Homes as sales manager.

To be sure, Ned Eichler argued with his father Joseph over many aspects of the business, which in fact went bankrupt after breaking with its successful suburban formula. In 1974 Ned became involved in the "workout" business, which helped companies in financial trouble overcome their problems.

Somehow in his busy career, Ned found time to indulge his passion for history, entering the PhD program at the University of California, Berkeley. Besides his business experience, therefore, he is uniquely qualified as an historian to address our historical society. I hope you will all join me and the other members of the LAHHS Board in hearing from a fascinating man, and speaker, Ned Eichler.
