The stories of the Irish-born and their descendants in the city of San Francisco fill many volumes and span long decades—from the era of the Californios through the rough early days of the Gold Rush to the development and maturity of San Francisco as America's great Western metropolis. The Irish have been a part of it all; cops, criminals, and those who span the in-between, genius engineers, eccentric writers, radical labor activists and stone capitalists, clergy both liberal and conservative, teachers, nuns and social activists. Join us and historian Tony Bucher in celebration of St. Patrick's Day by revisiting some of the fascinating tales of the Irish City.
Our speaker is Tony Bucher is a writer and historian born in San Francisco and descended from Irish immigrants of the 1880s. He writes for the Irish Herald newspaper and is President of the Irish Literary & Historical Society of San Francisco. Cosponsored by the Mechanics' Institute. Register now by calling (415) 393-0103.
