"BOSTWICK--Henry "Bud" BOSTWICKJr - Henry "Bud' BOSTWICK Jr., one of the most influential figures in San Mateo County's growth and prosperity in the past half-century, died Tuesday in Monsey, N.Y., at the age of 86. Mr. BOSTWICK led the San Mateo County Economic Development Association from 1955 until 1992, an era of unrivaled housing and job growth. He was an affable man with a quick wit. One of his greatest joys was his son, Barry, who plays the mayor of New York on the television program "Spin City". When the younger BOSTWICK played George Washington in a miniseries, Mr. BOSTWICK joked that he was "the father of the father of our country". At work, Mr. BOSTWICK was a tireless promoter of San Mateo County wit a politician's skill at recalling names and faces. "He really was the ambassador for San Mateo County," Mary Griffin, president of the county Board of Supervisors, said Thursday. San Mateo County Manager John Maltbie said that whenever talk turns to the giants of the county's development boom of the 1950s and '60s, Mr. BOSTWICK's name is among the first to be mentioned, along with David Bohannon, developer of Hillsdale Shopping Center, and T. Jack Foster, builder of Foster City. "They and others like them all worked closely together and were largely responsible for the prosperity that we enjoy in this county today," he said. Many of the successes Mr. BOSTWICK and others in the development field enjoyed came before the environmental movement tat in many ways they helped spawn. Environmentalist Lennie Roberts occasionally crossed swords with Mr. BOSTWICK on growth issues at county supervisors' hearings. Nonetheless, she paid tribute to his "dedication as a leader in the development community who was probably without peer." "Bud was a great guy, always very genial, a man with a really warm smile," she said. Born in Oakland, Mr. BOSTWICK grew up in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury neighborhood and attended Lowell High School and the University of California at Berkeley. After graduating from the American Institute of Banking, he married the form Betty DEFENDORF of San Mateo. He served in the merchant marine during World War II. Afterward, the couple moved to San Mateo, and Mr. BOSTWICK worked in the shipping business before establishing the public relations firm of BOSTWICK-Healy. He also became active in Republican politics, directing the successful congressional campaign for J. Arthur Younger and running the local presidential campaign for Dwight Eisenhower in 1952. He helped establish and then ran the San Mateo County Economic Development Association over five decades. "He knew exactly what should be said and what should be done," said Ron Sykora, a development association board member for many years and a retired officer of the Bohannon company. "He more or less did everything there." He was often the guest speaker for service clubs and other community groups. But Mr. BOSTWICK also worked behind the scenes, lobbying local politicians for projects he felt would benefit the economy. Mr. BOSTWICK moved to New York last year to be closer to is son. He is survived by is wife of 59 years, Betty; son Barry; and four grandchildren. His son Peter died in 1973. Funeral services were private. The family suggests donations to Hillbarn Community Theatre, 1285 E. Hillsdale Blvd., Foster City, CA 94404." Source: San Francisco Chronicle, 11 Dec 1999. Submitted by Carol Hicks.

BOWLER and his wife, who reside at 405 Oaks street, San Francisco, were fishing when their row boat overturned. Both were plunged into the water.

Urging her to have courage, the husband swam toward her, but when only a few feet away she sank. Remaining in the water and diving at intervals in the hope of finding his wife, BOWLER finally swam to shore exhausted. The body of the young woman had apparently been carried away by the strong current. The couple have a little child who had been left at home. Police and friends continued the search for hours in the hope of recovering the body. Dragging of the river was resumed on Monday. The accident happened at 1 o'clock Sunday and soon afterwards the news was phoned to the Argus-Courier by Miss Mabel WAYNE, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.C. WAYNE, who reside at Grand View.

"BOWLER--BOWLER, Cecilia--Body of Mrs. Alfred BOWLER Found on Banks of River. The body of the late Mrs. Celia BOWLER, 26, of San Francisco, wife of Alfred BOWLER, who was accidentally drowned in the Petaluma River, near Black Point, while boating with her husband on last Saturday afternoon at 1 o'clock, was sighted on Friday morning by Captain Al BRAVO of the steamer Gold of this city while on her regular trip to San Francisco. The body was lying on the bank of the river, on the Sonoma county side of the stream, about a mile and a half north of the Black Point cut-off highway bridge and when the steamer reached the bridge, Captain BRAVO reported his success in sighting the body to the bridge custodians. The husband, father and brother of Mrs. BOWLER had been at Black Point since the fatal accident, continuing their search for the body and awaiting its rise to the surface, believing that it had not been carried out into the bay. As soon as notified, they secured a launch and motoring to the spot pointed out by the steamer captain secured the body. On last Saturday, Mrs. BOWLER and her husband, a truck salesman of San Francisco, were in a skiff near the Black Point draw bridge, and were being towed by a launch, in which their six-year old son was riding. The skiff was accidentally overturned. BOWLER made a heroic attempt to save his wife's life but she went down in mid-stream and he was unable to locate her body and finally had to save himself as the river was quite rough. An intensive search was kept up for several days by many men, but they finally believed that the body had been carried by the current out thru the bridges into the bay so the search was discontinued by all save the husband, father and brother of Mrs. BOWLER. They have remained in the vicinity continually since the sad accident. At the request of Coroner Fred YOUNG who was unable to reach here, Deputy Coroner C.C. WHITE of the Mount funeral parlors motored to Black Point, removed the body from the waters and secured all of the data relative to the accident and the death of Mrs. BOWLER and at the request of the relatives turned the body over to a San Francisco firm of undertakers who left with it by auto hearse for the San Francisco shortly after it was landed."

"BOYD--BY STATE TELEGRAPH, San Francisco, Dec. 26 - Last Saturday a party consisting of Captain David JENKINS and his son, John Frederick LITTLEJOHN and Charles BOYD, left Redwood City in the sloop 'C.E. Long.' She arrived at this port safely and started back for Redwood Sunday. On her way she encountered the fearful gale of Sunday afternoon and was wrecked near the mouth of the creek off San Mateo and all on board lost about 10 a.m. Monday the sloop 'Roman' put out from Redwood City to her assistance and returned about midnight Tuesday with a confirmation of the sad event in all its particulars. The wreckers brought with them the small boat belonging to the wrecked sloop. When found, the 'Long' lay on her side with all her sails spread. They could not find any traces of the unfortunate people who were lost from her, nor could they succeed in righting her." Source: Stockton Daily Independent, 27 Dec 1867. Transcribed by Dee.
