Richard Schwartz: East Bay Stories of the 1868 Hayward Fault Earthquake
21 October 2008 marks the 140th anniversary of the last “Big One” on the Hayward Fault, one of the most destructive in California history. USGS scientists describe this fault as a tectonic time bomb, due anytime for another magnitude 6.8-to-7.0 earthquake. Historian Richard Schwartz’s lecture will include first-hand accounts by people who experienced the shock, little-known facts about the quake, what the people learned from the quake, and a survey of buildings that survived the 1868 earthquake and are still standing. Tickets $15
