Biographies of Representative Men

San Mateo County’s history with its exposition of contemporary local conditions, resources and advantages, would be incomplete without the following biographical sketches of pioneers and leading business and professional men. These supplement the history and add that intimate and personal touch, without which no work of this kind could be truly interesting.

In the following life stories may be found many of the most important events that have taken place in both early and contemporary county history. A collection of biographies of this kind is always interesting; but their greatest value lies in the fact that they chronicle much that might otherwise be forgotten, thereby becoming of greater value as time goes on. They are arranged in no particular sequence, being printed on the following pages in the order in which they were obtained.
