In 1911 famed Bay Area architect, Julia Morgan, returned to her alma mater to design a social hall for senior women students. The result was a deceptively simple, brown-shingle affair in the Bay Tradition style. Behind this simplicity was a subtle feminist act to empower women students and redefine femininity in the early twentieth century

In this lecture Julia Morgan scholar, Dr. Karen McNeil, will speak on Julia Morgan’s life, UC Berkeley and the women’s movement, and the history of the Garden’s newest building.
