Selden Gile ended up falling in love with the daughter of a ranch owner; her name was Beryl Whitney. But when her parents who were disapproving of their relationship, sent her away to Europe, she married another man and hurt Selden very deeply. From then on, Selden Connor Gile kept away from women. In 1905, he moved to Oakland, California, and worked as a salesman of ceramic building materials for Gladding McBean whose products became critical in the rebuilding of San Francisco, California after the big earthquake.
With the Society of Six, Selden Gile exhibited paintings at the Oakland Art Gallery. And in 1927, he moved north to Tiburon across the Golden Gate Bridge; after that, Selden moved to a houseboat in Belvedere where he continued to paint. But Selden Gile also became associated with a heavy drinking crowd, which ultimately affected the quality of his painting.
Selden Gile died from alcoholism on June 8, 1947, and is buried at the cemetery at Mt. Tamalpais, a site he loved to paint.
