Jack Shelton... He started the first restaurant newsletter in San Francisco and wrote about food for the Pacific Sun and Focus. He gave restaurant criticism a good name when many critics were still eating on the cuff.

Proud of writing unvarnished reviews, Shelton valued his anonymity as a reviewer. Indeed, he wore a mask at one public forum: a 1974 Board of Supervisors hearing where he testified in favor of a measure that would have required restaurants to label frozen entrees on their menus. Jack Shelton passed away in 1984.
