At a festive event Feb. 27 at Blake House in Kensington, San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown was presented with his oral history, "First Among Equals: California Legislative Leadership, 1964-1994."

The history was prepared by Gabrielle Morris of Bancroft Library's Regional Oral History Office and presented by Bancroft Director Charles Faulhaber. Above, from left, are Mayor Brown; John De Luca, president of the Wine Institute and a close friend of Brown's; and UC President Richard Atkinson.

Guests included former UC Presidents Peltason and Saxon, UC Regent Bill Bagley and Ernest Gallo.

President Atkinson surprised Brown by also awarding him the UC Presidential Medal. Brown graduated from Hastings and was a UC Regent from 1980 to 1995.

Brown, who arrived uncharacteristically early, charmed guests with stories of his long and varied political career. Of the oral history he said, "there's no way for you to know how much this means to me." Peg Skorpinski photo.
