Who Was Sydney Walton

greenspun.com : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

I know from the miniscule online references I've found that Sydney G. Walton was "a San Francisco businessman and cultural leader", but what business was he in, and what sorts of culture did he lead? When did he live and what were his most notable accomplishments, besides the park?

He was born Feb. 12 1901 and died Dec. 4 1960. Look for him in Who Was Who in America, volume 4.
