The Man Who Ran The Fair; the personal papers, scrapbooks and souvenirs of Charles C. Moore, President of the PPIE

The Society of California Pioneers
Mar 01, 2015 to Apr 18, 2015

Charles C. Moore is often given the lion’s share of credit for the success of The Panama Pacific International Exposition of 1915. As part of this year’s citywide centennial celebration of The PPIE, our exhibition includes a copy of Moore’s itinerary during the fair (he attended 425 events and gave 277 speeches between February 20 and December 4), the citations and medals he received, invitations to both public and private events, souvenirs from his unique experience, as well as the autograph book he kept on his desk (signed by Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, William Jennings Bryan, FDR, and Theodore Roosevelt).

City Rising: San Francisco and the 1915 World’s Fair

Feb 21, 2015 to Jan 10, 2016
Palace of Fine Arts
After the fair closed, this ephemeral “city within a city” was all but erased from the landscape. The only building saved from demolition—and still standing in its original location—was the Palace of Fine Arts. Repaired in the 1930s, reconstructed in the 1960s, and recently restored, this beloved city landmark is one of architect Bernard Maybeck’s San Francisco masterworks.
