Al Zampa

Alfred Zampa was a United States bridge worker who played an integral role in the construction of numerous San Francisco Bay Area bridges during the early twentieth century. He was most notable for being one of the first people to survive falling off the Golden Gate Bridge, he was a charter member of the Half Way to Hell Club, whose members are the men who fell from the Golden Gate Bridge and were saved by the nets. Zampa was born in California, he retired from the position of iron worker at the age of 65 in 1970, died at the age of 95 in Tormey, California. In 1987 writer Isabelle Maynard wrote and produced a play titled "The Ace" chronicling Zampa's exploits on the Golden Gate Bridge and the formation of the Half Way to Hell Club. "The Ace" was based on Zampa's life and was advertised as an "iron worker's story of heroism and recognition on the Golden Gate Bridge." It was well-received on San Francisco stages during the bridge's 50th anniversary year. The Alfred Zampa Memorial Bridge is named in his honor.

The new bridge replaced the 1927 span of the Carquinez Bridge which Zampa helped construct, beginning at the age of 20. Official site of the Alfred Zampa Memorial Bridge Robinson, John V.
