Willie Mays also tried to buy a house in Belmont, CA…..My dad made him the loan, or agreed to make him the loan. (My dad was the first manager of the Belmont Branch of the Bank of America.) I remember it was a nice two story white house on a dead end street in Belmont. Mr. Mays never moved into the home. My dad got threats and hate mail (I saw one piece of it.) I cannot imagine what those neighbors said to Mr. Mays and his family.

I was a kid, but it made quite an impression.
