Harmon Gymnasium
Thomas Contra Costa  p.68  C-7.  Thomas 1997  p.629  H-2.
Former basketball facility at University of California - Berkeley. In 1878, Oakland financier A. K. P. Harmon donated $15,000 for a combined auditorium/gymnasium building at UC. Opened in January 1879, the octagonal wooden building was the largest auditorium on the campus for many years, and it was extensively remodeled several times. In 1933, a new Men's Gymnasium was built off Bancroft Way near Dana St, and in 1959 it was renamed Harmon Gymnasium. Although a state-of-the-art facility at its opening, Harmon by the 1980s was regarded as a tiny and poorly equipped college basketball facility, though its close seating and aggressive fans made it a significant asset to Cal's basketball teams. In 1998, Harmon was torn down and replaced by the new Haas Pavilion. For more detailed history, see http://www.calbears.com/trads/cal-m-baskbl-harmon.html

Head-Royce School
Thomas 1997  p.650  E-3.
Private coeducational college-preparatory K-12 school in Oakland. The Anna Head School was founded in 1887 by the ninth woman to graduate from the University of California and was located at 2538 Channing Way, just south of the UC Berkeley campus. (Anna Head created the school with money given to her by her mother Eliza Head, from the proceeds of selling the school she had founded in Oakland in the 1860s to teach young ladies the finer points of English and French.) The Anna Head School became a very prestigious college-preparatory institution for women, taking both boarding and day students. When Anna Head retired in 1909, she sold the school to a teacher, Mary E. Wilson. In 1938, it was sold to Mr. & Mrs. T. R. Hyde, and in 1950 to Mr. & Mrs. Daniel Dewey. In 1955, the University of California acquired the campus by eminent domain for its own programs. Because the Deweys could not afford to relocate, a new corporation was created to run the school, and a new location was found in the Oakland Hills. The move was completed in 1964, with the school becoming only a day school. In 1971, the corporation created a companion school for boys, the Royce School (named for Anna Head's brother-in-law, Josiah Royce, Harvard professor and philosopher). In the fall of 1979, the schools were combined to form a coeducational K-12 institution, divided into the Lower School (K-5), the Middle School (6-8), and the Upper School (9-12).

Birders often use the name to refer to an area of restored marsh southwest of the University of California Richmond Field Station at the mouth of Meeker Slough.

Holy Names College
Thomas 1997  p.650  G-4 (as "College of the Holy Names").
An independent, coeducational, Catholic college with a strong liberal-arts undergraduate program, significant graduate and professional programs, and a thriving college for adult learners. Founded as the Convent of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart on the western shore of Lake Merritt in 1868 by six Sisters of the Holy Names (a teaching order founded to provide education to the poor) who came to California from Montreal. By 1880 the school was empowered by California to grant higher degrees. Its primary purpose at that time was to train teachers for Catholic schools, and only Sisters of the order were given college-level education. In 1908, the name was changed to Convent and College of the Holy Names, and in 1916 secular students were admitted for the first time. In 1917 the Holy Names Junior College was inaugurated; the senior college officially opened in 1925, with the first B.A. awarded to a secular student in 1926. In 1955, the Graduate Division was established, and men were formally admitted for the first time. In 1957, the college moved to its present location in the Oakland Hills (the Kaiser Center was then built on its former grounds, and some plantings from the Convent garden still survive in the public garden on top of the Kaiser Center parking garage). In 1971, the entire college officially became coed and the name was formally changed to Holy Names College.

On the east side of the Berkeley Hills between Oakland and Orinda, this preserve contains a relic plant association found only in certain areas along California's coast where ideal soil and climatic conditions exist.  The plants originated in the distant past along the southern coast of California when the climate was more moist and tempered by the cool coastal fog.  Today, similar vegetation is found on the islands off the Santa Barbara coast and in isolated pockets on the mainland coast from Point Conception to Montara Mountain.  There is a self-guiding nature trail (Huckleberry Path).
