If Berkeley had the good sense of the Japanese to recognize outstanding citizens as national treasures, Richard Schwartz would get my vote. Professionally a building contractor, Schwartz somehow finds time to explore Berkeley's past via its newspapers, archives, and maps. He has returned from that forgeign land to self-publish gracefully written and handsome books filled with period illustrations of his discoveries. Those books not only reveal to us a place we thought we knew but are testimony to Schwartz's deep love for his adopted town. I am grateful for his generousity in sharing his wealth." Dr. Gray Brechin, Historical Geographer, University of California, Berkeley "It's so COOL! And fun to browse through. What an epic journey! I've been reading it tonight. So much scandal, blood and gore, Fires! I love it!" The Milagro Bean Field War author John Nichols, (born in Berkeley) commenting upon reading Berkeley 1900 (The Milagro Bean Field War book was adapted into the film directed by Robert Redford)
