The Wilbur Family and Palo Alto: A Shared History

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

Ray Lyman Wilbur’s son, Blake, followed in his father’s footsteps and became one of the leading heart surgeons on the Peninsula. Blake served as a professor at the Stanford University School of Medicine and later helped found the Palo Alto Medical Foundation. He is memorialized by the Blake Wilbur building, part of Stanford Hospital on Blake Wilbur Drive.

Ray Lyman Wilbur III and his wife Anne founded Wilbur Properties in 1991. The company is now run by Anne and their daughter, Alexandra, who is proud to represent the fourth generation of the Wilbur family in Palo Alto.
