The first time a mayor of San Francisco handed out the keys to the city, the honor went to a Russian-born American businessman and candy-maker for inventing a machine that mechanically inserted sticks into lollipops. That was in 1916. The most recent recipient is a five-year old kid dressed up as a bat. Mayor Ed Lee (Bowdoin Class of 1974) presided Friday as the City by the Bay came together to make a child’s dream come true.
