BIO

Charles Haven worked in the insurance industry and at least at one point was part of the London Liverpool and Globe Insurance Company.2 He was a member of the California National Guard.3

Strangely and famously, Charles Haven was burglarized at least three times. The third time a maid locked him in an outhouse where Haven and his sons confronted him. The burglar got away by slipping out of his coat which the Havens turned over to the police.1
