The Streets of Menlo Park delves into the genealogical backgrounds of the manyspecial people behind the street names of Menlo Park, especially those from the Gold Rush Era. Wealthy San Francisco city dwellers purchased land in the area of Menlo Park Ranch after the railroad depot was completed. A street grid was developed and populated with names from numerous sources.

Bo Crane grew up in North Palo Alto in an area now in Menlo Park. He was an English major at Stanford, and is the author of two books: The Streets of Menlo Park, and The Life and Times of Dennis Martin.
