I just learned about the Berkeley Historical Plaque Project and want to urge someone to submit the Stewart house (which I found once through a street directory in the Berkeley Public Library), which is where I assume George wrote. As a student of political science, it has special meaning for me because, as I understand it, it was the model for Ish’s house and living room is where the state was created, so to me it’s something like Independence Hall.
I replied, suggesting that if he wants to work on the nomination, we’ll help as we can. The idea is a good one, and appropriate.
The house on San Luis Road is the model for Ish’s home in Earth Abides. He disguises it by renaming the road San Lupo Drive, but the physical characteristics of the house and the neighborhood are very close to the real house, as it was in the days of Ish.
It’s been changed quite a bit now, but his idea is something we should consider. Stay tuned.
Good idea, Greg.
