"Inthe Town and Gown Club acquired a lot on the corner of Dwight Way and Dana Street for $1, Bernard Maybeck, then instructor in drawing at the University of California, was recruited to draw up the plans for the clubhouse.

Although the building budget was limited to $2, the architect managed to create a stir with his design."--BAHA, Daniella : K. The Town & Gown Club is a historic private women’s club in the heart of Berkeley dedicated to promoting friendship. Members enjoy stimulating and entertaining programs.

Even though college students and faculty rarely wear the long, black medieval gowns symbolic of their status, the term “town and gown” still denotes the relationship between a college or university and its local community.

The oral histories cover family life and connections (mothers, daughters, in-laws, who were also members); social life in the university community, especially the s to s. Nor does he want his title to suggest that the book is a compendium of Berkeley’s trend-setting firsts, though he ticks off many of them (and it’s an impressive list of town/gown accomplishments): The first city to divest from South Africa, to create a citizen police-review panel and a tool-lending library, to provide curbside recycling, to.
