2003 History Makers - The Foster Family

Every year, the San Mateo County Historical Association hosts a History Makers Dinner that highlights an individual and/or family of San Mateo County who has made significant contributions to California history and beyond.

The T. Jack Foster, Sr. family envisioned a planned community in the 1950s, featuring novel concepts in design, engineering, financing, and governmental participation. The concepts were deemed to be so futuristic as to inspire the Modern Art Museum in San Francisco to put models and artistsí renderings of the new Foster City on display.
Today the result is an attractive development, which is a home and workplace for tens of thousands of County residents. Over the years the Fosters have participated in many community causes. It is the Historical Associationís privilege to pay homage to their activities as builders and sustainers of our County.
