Daly City,

city (1990 pop. 92,311), San Mateo co., W Calif., a suburb of San Francisco; inc. 1911. Daly City is primarily residential, its population having grown significantly since the 1970s. The "Cow Palace," scene of the 1964 Republican national convention, is there. Sparsely settled until the 1860s, when a small community developed by the railroad station near dairyman John Daly's farm, Daly City burgeoned when refugees from the 1906 San Francisco earthquake settled on lots carved from the farm. The area remained largely agricultural until after World War II.
