Fourteen Depression-era UC Berkeley students, guided by the campus YMCA general secretary Harry L. Kingman, established a house that would launch the University of California Students’ Cooperative Association. Now known as the Berkeley Student Cooperative (BSC), the student-owned and student-operated non-profit cooperative has continued to grow since its founding, offering several affordable housing options to UC Berkeley students and those at other Bay Area colleges and universities. This exhibition celebrates the 80th anniversary of the BSC, the largest student cooperative in the United States, with photographs, brochures, publications, correspondence, and other documents drawn from the BSC records and other collections in the University Archives. It explores its origins, traditions, artistic activities, political involvement, and environmental sustainability efforts.
