History of The Wilbur Family in Palo Alto

We are a part of Palo Alto history. We are local experts.

For Palo Alto natives and Stanford alumnae alike, the Wilbur name may be familiar.  Dr. Ray Lyman Wilbur, the third president of Stanford University, is the grandfather of Wilbur Properties’ founder, Ray Lyman Wilbur, III.  Ray Lyman Wilbur served as president of the American Medical Association, and later became Secretary of the Interior under President Herbert Hoover.

Ray Lyman Wilbur’s son Blake Wilbur followed in his father’s footsteps, and became a doctor--one of the leading surgeons on the Peninsula.  Blake served as a professor at the Stanford University School of Medicine and is famous for his role as one of the six founding doctors of the Palo Alto Medical Foundation.  He is memorialized by the Blake Wilbur building, part of Stanford Hospital on Blake Wilbur Drive.

The Wilbur family is an established Palo Alto family. Having been here for generations, the Wilbur's possess generations of knowledge about both the history of Palo Alto and the local real estate market.
