San Francisco Sheriff's Department History Online is an ongoing project researched and written by Michael Hennessey and Richard Dyer.
A majority of the material presented here is first-hand research by the authors working with primary sources. We thank the staffs at the San Francisco Main Library, the Bancroft and Doe Libraries at UC Berkeley, and the California State Library for their invaluable and continuing help. These outstanding public institutions find and preserve the primary archives that reveal and define the history of California and San Francisco.
The authors are actively seeking SFSD History Online website ads and sponsorship to continue to purchase the rights for, and have copies made of, historic photos and documents from libraries and museums, and for the cost of website design and administration. To support the site please contact Richard Dyer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
