Full Title (Composite map of) San Francisco Scale Model, Scale 1 inch 100 ft. Constructed by Federal Works Agency, Work Projects Administration. Sponsored by City Planning Commission. 1940.
List No 10261.001
Note Composite of all pieces of the San Francisco Model. This model is a 42 by 38 foot detailed wooden replica of the city of San Francisco as it was in 1940 in 158 pieces at a scale of 1 inch to 100 feet. The pieces contain about 6,000 removable city blocks. The model was built by The Works Progress Administration in the late 1930s, under the New Deal. It was first displayed in sections in the Golden Gate International Exposition on Treasure Island in San Francisco Bay in 1939. In 1940-1942 it was displayed in San Francisco City Hall. The model was used as an urban planning tool by San Francisco city agencies and departments through the 1960's. In 1968, the downtown portion of the model became a research and planning tool in the Environmental Simulation Laboratory in the College of Environmental Design at UC Berkeley. The model has not been on public view, in its entirety, since 1942. UC Berkeley is the current owner of the model. The intent of the makers of the model was to have it updated as the city changed over time. The condition of the model is generally good except for the downtown and south of market portion which needs restoration - many blocks have been removed and lost, probably from the time it was used and updated as a planning tool. In 2018 and 2019 the model was cleaned and made available for public viewing both physically and digitally as part of the joint program of SFMOMA and the San Francisco Public Library called Public Knowledge: Take Part, with these participants: Artist Team: Bik Van der Pol; Project Manager: Stella Lochman; Project Director: Tomoko Kanamitsu; Curatorial Lead: Deena Chalabi. The model pieces were individually photographed by Beth LaBerge. David Rumsey created the large Composite image of the 158 pieces, as well as the image and metadata database of all the images, which he hosts.

Full Title The United States as viewed by California (Very unofficial), distorted and drawn by Ernest Dudley Chase, Winchester, Mass. Copyright 1940, Ernest Dudley Chase.
List No 10006.000
Note Uncolored pictorial map (as issued, see our hand colored copy, presumably colored by an owner). Showing the United States from the point of view of Californian, with the Sun smiling on a disproportionately large California while the rest of the country is compressed into a largely undifferentiated spider���s web beneath dark rain clouds. Throughout the state, California is also depicted as a cornucopia of plenty, teaming with industry, agriculture, recreational activity, wild life and natural wonders. Shows landmarks such as Spanish Colonial missions, the Rose Bowl, the Bakersfield oil wells and the state capital building. An airplane in the sky bearing the slogan ���we���ll soon be there!��� approaches the state line along with a train, a bus and cars, while railroad cars carrying California produce head east. Chase created this highly distorted view of the United States as perceived by Californians. One-third the size of the rest of the country, the state is perpetually drenched by the sun. Relief shown pictorially. Signed lower left in pencil: Ernest Dudley Chase.

Full Title The Tree of Modern Art, Planted 60 Years Ago.
List No 8638.000
Note This is a later hand drawn and painted version of Covarrubias' well known Tree of Modern Art that appeared in Vanity Fair Magazine in May of 1933. This tree is much the same, but the name of Dali has been added to the Surrealists branch, reflecting Dali's rise to prominence in the ensuring seven years. The Greek bust and the reclining man with frame are no present. The picture is signed by Covarrubias in the lower right. The date is estimated based on the verso of the paper being a blue lined base map of the National Park Service dated 12/28/39. This drawing was found in the papers of B. Ashburton Tripp (see our maps and drawing by him) and we assume that Covarrubias and Tripp were friends (verified by Tripp's descendants) and that the blue line base map was something Tripp was working on in his landscape architecture business. Possibley Covarrubias drew this for Tripp during a visit.
