Something About the Author
Theron G. Cady, author
of "Tales of the San Francisco Peninsula," is a "Hoosier" by birth.
He was born fifty-one years ago in a log cabin on the banks of the Wabash
River in Indiana. After serving with the Marines during World War
I he came to California in 1919 and settled in Los Altos. Here he
began his journalistic career by serving on the staff of several Peninsula
newspapers and writing for national publications. As Associate Editor
of "Peninsula Life Magazine" he has presented many colorful stories
of people and places on San Francisco Peninsula.
For the past several
years my friends have felt that my stories and articles of the San Francisco
Peninsula should be put into book form. They wanted them collected
and bound under one cover and published under one name. In acceding
to their wishes I have gathered and arranged the stories and articles in
a series of which this is the first. I hope it meets the expectations
of my friends for in these stories I have embodied many of their own ideas.
TO MY WIFE
Without her cooperation this little book
might never have been published.
