Description

Then known as the Lincoln School, this school was improved by the WPA in 1937-1938. In his book on Berkeley and the New Deal, Harvey Smith reports that “Research has not yet revealed what improvements were made, but earthquake safety was undoubtedly on the minds of school administrators” (p. 53).
