      Article reads: "A Friend of the Prisoners". [source The California Endeavorer, December 1927 - January 1928, Volume XV, Number 5]

      "The California C.E. Union is fortunate in having Leon C. Osteyee as their Prison Superintendent. His untiring love and devotion to his "job" at the three state penal institutions have won him a place in the hearts of many hundreds of men behind the gray walls. We will probably never be able to fully measure the tremendous amount of good that he has done for those less fortunate than we. It is not an uncommon sight to walk into his office in San Francisco and find him busily engaged in trying to help an ex convict find a position of respect and start life ane

      Besides his work at the prisons, Leon Osteyee manages to help on the County Executive of the Marin Union. His "living expense" job is that of a real estate broker, but he says this is only a sideline.

      Leon Osteyee truly lives his Christianity."
