Making a 1924 Visit Overseas

This San Francisco resident applied for a passport in 1924. The name above the first dashed line is the one we're trying to read.


  1. H. W. Ernest Gerdes ??
    Not sure about the first Initial - that may be an "A"

  2. I'm not real sure about the initials - could be H.M. or H.W. - but I believe the name is Ernst Jerden.
