Event Details

Seven years ago the Bancroft Library at UC Berkeley received a gift from the Fang Family of the San Francisco Examiner photographic archive, a rich collection of photographs documenting twentieth century San Francisco and more. Pictorial Processing Archivist Lori Hines will present a slideshow and talk on trends in journalism, culture, and history she observed while sorting, re-housing, and describing the collection of 3.6 million negatives from ca. 1930-2000. Images include San Francisco landmarks, World War II home front, celebrities, bohemian life, disasters and vice.

Organizer

Mechanics' Institute Library & Chess Room

The Mechanics' Institute Library and Chess Room is an historic membership library, cultural event center, and chess club located in the Financial District of San Francisco, California at 57 Post Street. Founded in 1854 to serve the vocational needs of out-of-work gold miners, the Institute today is a favorite of avid readers, writers, downtown employees, students, film lovers, chess players, and the 21st century nomadic worker who needs a quiet place to plug in a laptop and do research.
