Ralph King was born in 1902 in Hudson, Ohio. In 1908, the family moved to California, where Ralph's father pursued various careers, including horse breeder and trainer, rancher, carpenter, and Methodist lay minister. Ralph worked from an early age, putting himself through school at the University of California, Berkeley, where he earned BA and MA degrees. King first came to Echo in 1925 to work at Kleeberger Camp. In 1928, he took over the Echo boat service, which he operated until 1942.
