John Joseph Meyer Sr. was the sixth civilian to be hired by the Pearl Harbor Navy yard, which in April 1908, the year he started, was in the talking stage. He first was at the Naval Supply Station on Pier 5, Honolulu.

John started out earning $3.04 a day at first, and retired with a CAF-12 rating.

As a naval civil service worker, he never had anything but a supervisory position. He headed an assistant and four laborers in 1908. When he retired he was chief clerk for more than a 1000 personnel.

After several years of alternating between Honolulu and what is now Pearl Harbor, Mr. Meyer permanently moved his offices to Pearl Harbor in 1912. In 1918 his title of chief clerk was made official.

Before entering into civil service, John had assisted his father, Frederick Meyer, as a book-keeper at the Waianae Sugar Plantation for three years.
