Courthouse Docket - Prohibition in San Mateo County
In the 1930s, mobster Sam Termini called San Mateo County the most corrupt county in the state. With rumrunners landing Canadian whiskey on isolated beaches, moonshiners operating in homes and a multitude of speakeasies, the county earned a reputation as one of the "wettest" in the state during Prohibition. Carmen Blair, Deputy Director of the San Mateo County Historical Association, will share local Prohibition stories she discovered while researching for the changing exhibit "Broads, Bootleggers and Bookies" that was on exhibit at the San Mateo County History Museum in 2011.

The 2020 Courthouse Docket series is sponsored by Cypress Lawn Heritage Foundation.
