Who remembers the A&W Root Bear?

by Linda Hubbard on June 4, 2019

Emails Steve Golden: “Great nostalgia in your piece on A&W [in Menlo Park].

“I showed it to a friend, Jeff Gaffney, who grew up in Atherton. Not only did he remember fondly, but he worked there. As the bear mascot, e.g. the A&W Root Bear!

“He said Ray Bartles was on his paper route, and eventually gave him the job at A&W.”
