This PowerPoint presentation will explore the background for Berkeley’s New Deal legacy. Our tours, when in person, begin at the corner of the “New Deal nexus” that includes Berkeley High School and the Community Theater, art in the Post Office, the old Farm Credit Building (repurposed as the Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center), and the YMCA.

Other sites include Civic Center Park, the old UC Press Building (repurposed as the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive), the mosaic mural on the UC Berkeley campus, the California Folk Music Project, Western Museum Laboratory, Berkeley Rose Garden, and North Branch Library. We will examine the roots of the New Deal, the projects of some Berkeley New Dealers, and how New Deal values and policies apply today.

Harvey Smith, a researcher and the author of the book Berkeley and the New Deal and a Project Advisor to The Living New Deal, will lead this presentation
