September  Meeting
Date: Saturday, September 24th 10:00AM - 12 Noon
Topic:  The Life and Time of Dennis Martin, San Mateo Pioneer
Speaker:  Bo Crane

“Bo Crane has written the definitive study of the most pervasive American pioneer of the mid-peninsula area. Arriving as a young man in Mexican territory with the first wagon train to cross the Sierra Nevada, Dennis Martin acquired land, built a home, saw mills and a church, but eventually lost all and died a pauper. Crane provides the details based on his extensive research and personal exploration. It’s a story you will enjoy reading and a book you will treasure as a reference.”

— Jym Clendenin, Menlo Park Historical Association President
