Gregory N. Zompolis is a fourth generation San Matean. His grandfather’s family moved there from San Francisco before San Mateo was incorporated in September 1894. Greg has now written five books and numerous magazine and newspaper articles. His first book in 1994 was about the animal rescue after the Oakland Hills Firestorm, of which he was an integral part. His next book, Images of America: San Mateo, published in 2004, focused on San Mateo’s history using vintage photographs. He has also written two online novels, The Treasure Island Murders, that uses the 1939 Exhibition in San Francisco as a detailed backdrop. Most recently, his book Tales of the Cocktail Generation is about the Baby-Boomer era.
