Andrea Rees Davies: Saving San Francisco

Mon, Apr 9 2012 - 6:00pm Saving San Francisco

Andrea Rees Davies, Assistant Professor of History at California State University, Northridge; Author, Saving San Francisco

Monday Night Philosophy dips into social history, near the anniversary of the 1906 earthquake, as historian and former firefighter Davies challenges the long-lived myth that the earthquake erased social differences as it leveled the city. New evidence from the relief camps exposes how preexisting social fissures influenced relief services and the reconstruction of our fair city.
