ACH EVERS Mendo, Marin railroad historian Wurm dies at 85 Theodore G. Wurm, an author and historian who wrote about the early railroads in Northern California, died in February at his home in Oakland. He was 85. Born in San Francisco, Wurm graduated from the University of San Francisco before joining the U.S. Air Force, fighting in World War II and retiring as a lieutenant colonel. Family members said he was at the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge on May 27,1937, and was the second of 200,000 people to cross the bridge that day. A noted lecturer as well as a writer, additionally he was an accountant - he was the office manager of the Tesio Meat Co. in Oakland for more than 30 year - plus a runner, who at the age of 60 had completed 13 marathons. He co-authored the book, "The Crookedest Railroad in the World," about the Mill Valley and Mount Tamalpais Scenic Railroad; co-authored "Narrow Gauge to the Redwoods," about Marin County's first railroads; a book on the history of the Caspar Lumber Co. and railroad called "Mallets on the Mendocino Coast"; and other works. He was a member of the Mendocino County Historical Society and was known around the county for his lecturing, book signings and presentations, says his daughter Margaret Ridgway. "He is friends with many of the CDF groups as they would hike with him into die back woods of Mendocino County looking for remains of the railroad," she said. "He lectured in Willits, Comptche, Mendocino, Caspar" and more, Ridgway says, and he is leaving a donation to the Roots of Motive Power association headquartered in Willits. "He has donated many books, photos, and relics to all the local museums," she continues. Wurm was called "one of the most excellent historians in the area," by a veteran railroad executive Arthur Lloyd, says an obituary about Wurm. "He was a great guy," says Robert Gray, a lifelong friend in the same obituary, "and he knew his stuff." His wife, Betty, survives him, along with four children: Michael Wurm, of Garden Valley; Elizabeth Wurm Woodard, of Santa Cruz; Sarah Wurm Rossi, of San Leandro; and Margaret Ridgway, of Ukiah.
