I might be able to assist. Why would you like to know? I have a book that nicely details my Grandfather's career beginning with the San Diego Tribune through West-Holiday and then through the creation of Nelson Roberts and Associates and the subsequent sale to Branhan- Maloney.

As you can see from my name, Nelson Roberts was my father. I worked with him (in different departments) at the Union-Tribune from 1946. I went to work for West-Holliday, Inc. in Oct. of 1967. I have much more info to give but I want to know what and or whom I am dealing with and why you want the information.
