Earthquake Exodus, 1906 tells the story of the ten-week relief effort in the East Bay after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire. Within hours of the earthquake, the people of Berkeley began to organize a citizens’ committee, knowing that terrified masses of stricken refuges would pour into their town within hours. By revisiting both their challenges – smallpox, fires, and keeping public order – and acts of grace, such as taking in the homeless, setting up temporary camps, and dispensing food, Richard Schwartz illuminates a nearly forgotten episode in Bay area history.
