Mitt Romney, Julia Child, and Harvey Milk

Ok trivia lovers, a question: what do Mitt Romney, Julia Child, and Harvey Milk have in common?

The answer: they all appeared in photographs in the San Francisco Examiner.

The Examiner’s historic photograph collection was given to the Bancroft Library at UC Berkeley. They are now arranging, cataloging, and digitizing the collection. They have a great Facebook page with lots of images from the collection, plus a staff blog of photos they like.

One photograph is of Archbishop Hanna in 1930 at the 75th anniversary of St. Ignatius College, which of course became……. the University of San Francisco.

Mitt Romney is shown leading a demonstration of College Republicans at Stanford in 1966, Julia Child shopping for food in San Francisco, and Harvey Milk during a campaign.

So take a break from final exams and papers and enjoy a few minutes of San Francisco history.
