San Francisco: Gateway to the American West

Thu Nov 16 9:30 am to 3:30 pm

Join university professors Drs. Ed Crowther and Rich Loosbrock for a grand bus tour of San Francisco. They have developed an entertaining and engaging style by using historical sites coupled with images and documents to provide a vivid and deep understanding of the events that shaped the American past. The tour will feature the major sites of San Francisco, including the Golden Gate Bridge, Haight-Ashbury, Chinatown, Nob Hill, and downtown, as well as sites along the way.

The tour is constructed around the theme of San Francisco and the American West, with particular focus on three periods:  San Francisco in the 19th century; the impact of the New Deal and World War II; San Francisco in the 1960s.

This tour will take in all parts of San Francisco and provide a comprehensive introduction to the city's major attractions, but will also wander off the beaten path for an enlightening look at an American treasure.

Fee: $30 for members and non-members
