Mayor Mott's Oakland

Oakland Public Library

A century ago, the people of Oakland elected Frank K. Mott as mayor to guide the city into a new century. With doctrines of the Progressive Movement, principles from the nascent science of urban planning and a large influx of population after San Francisco's disaster of 1906, Oakland's contemporary cityscape was formed.

The exhibit looks back over Mott's times and their lasting impact on Oakland and the entire region.
