Supes to honor Adolph Sutro 

The Board of Supervisors will vote Tuesday on a resolution introduced by Supervisor Eric Mar that will commemorate the 180th birthday of Adolph Sutro. The resolution will proclaim April 29 the official “Day of Adolph Sutro.” Sutro was born April 29, 1830, and died August 8, 1898. He arrived in San Francisco in November 1851 and “history remembers Sutro as one of San Francisco’s finest citizens who became its first populist mayor in 1895,” the resolution says.

It also notes that Sutro purchased the Cliff House in the 1880s, built the saltwater Sutro Baths, “the largest in the world,” and “planted the Sutro Forest with a million trees.”
