Ivan A. Howard, secretary, treasurer and general manager of the Idaho Tire & Rubber Company, doing business at the corner of Ninth and Bannock streets in Boise, dates his residence in this city from 1909, at which time he removed from Hastings, Nebraska, to the northwest. He was born at Edgar, Nebraska, August 13, 1879, being the only son of I. V. and Esther (Moore) Howard, who are now living in the Boise basin, in Boise county, Idaho. The father is the president of the Missouri Mining Company of this state.

I. A. Howard was largely reared at Edgar, Nebraska, where he pursued a public school education until graduated from the high school. He later spent two years in the University of Nebraska and afterward pursued a business course in the Chicago Athenaeum, being there graduated on completing a course in bookkeeping. He subsequently spent several years upon the road as representative of a large elevator company of Kansas City, for which concern he bought grain. He then returned to Edgar, Nebraska, and was associated with his father in the grain and banking business until 1909, when he came to Boise, where he has since been connected with the local automobile trade in one capacity or another. He is a master mechanic, thoroughly familiar with motor ear construction, and on the 21st of July, 1919, in partnership with Reilly Atkinson, he purchased the business of the Idaho Tire & Rubber Company, of which he has since been the secretary, treasurer and general manager, with Mr. Atkinson as the president. The capital stock of the concern was at once increased from ten thousand to thirty thousand dollars and the business was greatly enlarged. In addition to handling auto-mobile accessories of every kind, the company does a general battery and ignition business and has developed a most gratifying and substantial trade.

About twenty-two years ago Mr. Howard was married in Nebraska to Miss Martha Hazel McDougall and they have become parents of five sons and two daughters: Arthur McDougall, Dorothy, William, John M., Donald, Mary and Harold B. Fraternally Mr. Howard is an Elk and he also has membership with the Boise Chamber of Commerce and with the Boise Automobile Association. His experiences have been varied and as the years have passed he has constantly utilized and improved his opportunities with the result that he has made steady progress in the business world and is now a well known factor in connection with the automobile interests of Idaho.
