Ron has "Calendar of Events" on his SF history website, 1857:

February 11The State Treasurer was impeached at the bar of the Senate. In the afternoon Mr. BATES resigned the office, and James L. ENGLISH, former Mayor of SACRAMENTO, was appointed in his place.

. . . Is this the same impeachment you are looking for?

Ron,
Do you have any information on the McClure Academy? It may have been a military academy? I'm interested in who started it and how it got its' name. Thanks, Ame

I am looking for information about a suicide off the Jack Parr Hotel in the city of San Francisco in the later 1960's. I would appreciate any direction you can give me as to how to find this information, or possibly any information you might have access to. I am the daughter of the woman who jumped. I am 38, both my adoptive parents are recently dead and I would like to have this information now that my seeking it won't hurt my adoptive parents.

Thanks for any help or direction you can give me.

The S.F. Main Library has a good collection of the actual books and have them on microfilm.

You might also try checking the local used bookstores in S.F. Two that carry many S.F. history books are Argonaut and Acorn.

I would guess that would have made the newspapers. I would recommend visiting the S.F. Main Library and search through their newspaper indexes. With a date, you could then get a death certificate, check for obituaries and probably a coroner's report.

The correct name of the hotel was the "Jack Tarr." It changed names several years ago but still stands on the west side of Van Ness Avenue near Geary. It's a rather ugly, squarish building with a drive-up lobby. Perhaps some other reader to this forum can tell you the hotel's address and current name.

Good luck in your research.

Thanks, Julia Christy for your info. Do you find a W. W. TREAT listed? He was prez of the company? W. R. Grace and Co. was apparently parent company. Did they have a presence in SF in 1900-1910? Thanks in advance.

Thank you for the list of hospitals. It seems likely he was sent to a marine hospital (??) in San Francisco or environs. Any ideas as to names or where records are now stored? Thank you so much.
