 On August 5, 1959, in the early morning darkness, Officer Doran was fatally shot by a convicted auto thief during a traffic stop at Skyline Blvd. and Bunker Hill Dr. The killer was convicted and executed. In 1969, “Eugene A. Doran Memorial Bridge” above Crystal Springs Dam was named in his memory. Few persons crossing that Highway 280 bridge know why. After years of research and donations the 100 Club is proud to sponsor the placement of a granite marker below the bridge near the Sawyer Camp Trail entrance to inform the public about the fatal encounter.

The 100 Club of San Mateo County will conduct a dedication and unveiling ceremony on May 13, 2019, from 11:00 a.m. to noon inside the entrance to Sawyer Camp Trail.

100 Club Vice-President/Secretary & District Attorney, Steve Wagstaffe, will be the Master of Ceremonies. In addition to him, there will be three speakers with short remarks and recognitions. They are the president of the 100 Club, Hillsborough COP Doug Davis and Bill Larsen, as Chair of the Officer Doran Historical Marker Project.

At the conclusion of the presentations, guests will be invited to assemble in front of the monument for a ceremonial unveiling, before they disperse.
