Walter Leimert
courtesy Lakeshore Homes Association

Walter Hubert Leimert (February 23, 1877 - June 16, 1970) and his brother Harry were developers in Oakland. Walter helped develop both Trestle Glen, Lakeshore Highlands (Lakeshore Homes Association), and Oakmore Highlands.

Somewhat amazingly, the Leimert Investment Company is still in business.
