Berkeley High School, Berkeley, CA.

from the website:

The Berkeley High School campus covers four city blocks between Milvia Street and Martin Luther King Jr Way, and Allston and Channing Ways. It contains several buildings, built between 1901 and 2004, and displays a variety of architectural styles.


In the late 1930s, Berkeley High was remodeled. The Florence Schwimley Little Theater, The Berkeley Community Theatre, and the G and H buildings are prime examples of the Streamline Moderne style chosen by architects Henry H. Gutterson and William G. Corlett. The new buildings were financed largely by Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal program, the WPA.


A number of fairly famous people graduated from Berkeley High, including Thornton Wilder, Raymond Burr, and many younger persons now known in the fields of entertainment, activism, and sports.
