The story didn't go back far enough. I recall when President Jimmy Carter came to the Shorenstein Estate in the 70's. A friend of mine, whose family owned a house across Corte Madera Creek, invited me over to his place one night when Carter was there. We were about twelve years old, and for some reason decided to stand near the creek and shout "Hey Rosie!" (for Rosalind Carter) at the top of our voices.

Thanks for bringing up that memory from the past. Sorry to hear about the subdivision.
