Biographies of San Mateo County California

The Woodside Store San Mateo County California
This is a fully restored wooden structure once used by Dr. Tripp as a general store, post office, and dental office in the heyday of Lumber industry in Woodside.

San Mateo County’s History with its exposition of contemporary local conditions, resources and advantages, would be incomplete without the following 140 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.

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.
