oakland, story of a city

Available through our OHA store or at local stores, this book is a lively, widely recognized source for Oakland history.

Julia Morgan Gets Her Due

Since 1851, obituaries in The New York Times have been dominated by white men. Now they are seeking to recitfy this with Overlooked, adding the stories of remarkable people whose deaths went unreported. Morgan, the first woman to earn an architect’s license in California, was a prolific designer of hundreds of buildings and now has a Times obituary.
