A Conversation About the Berkeley Co-op

The Consumers Cooperative of Berkeley was a remarkable local institution for fifty years that went out of existence more than thirty years ago but is not forgotten. Sign up on Eventbrite for this program to hear multiple perspectives on the Co-op as we celebrate the publication of two new books and the posting of four new oral history transcripts on this website.

Speakers will include Michael Fullerton and Bob Schildgen, co-editors of the Co-op News in the 1980s; Greg Patmore, author of a new book about the Co-op; Therese Pipe, who will provide background on the decades-long BHS projects of documenting the Co-op; Charles “Chuck” Wollenberg; and moderator Harvey Smith, one-time Co-op member services and marketing coordinator. This event celebrates the BHS publication of A Life in Cooperatives, 1938–1992: Robert K. (Bob) March, the Berkeley Co-op and the Cooperative Movement and ties in with our upcoming online exhibit on food in Berkeley.
