San Francisco Archives Crawl: Counterculture and Social Protest


Join the California Historical Society, San Francisco History Center, Labor Archives and Research Center at San Francisco State University, GLBT Historical Society, and Levis Strauss & Co. Archives for San Francisco’s first Archives Crawl. The theme for the Archives Crawl is Counterculture and Social Protest and we are celebrating in October, which is Archives Month!

Archives Crawl is designed to celebrate archives in the city and encourages guests to explore and engage with institutions that collect archival material. Visit institutions you may not have visited before, pose questions, learn more about what an archive is and what archivists do. Complete the Archives Crawl at 5:00PM with a beer and wine celebration in the California Historical Society Gallery.
