The Stanford Women's Club Of San Francisco is celebrating the 100th Anniversary of its founding this year. We're delighted to present "Tales from San Francisco's 1915 Panama Pacific International Exposition", which focuses on the history of the early days of San Francisco.

The Panama Pacific International Exposition of 1915 was San Francisco’s first world’s fair. It was a stunning achievement that took more than a decade of planning, overcoming insurmountable odds, including civic corruption, the great earthquake and fire of 1906, intense competition from rival host cities and the outbreak of World War I.

The Stanford Women’s Club of San Francisco and NEXT Village SF invite you to join us for a fascinating and eye-opening look behind the scenes at how San Francisco rose from the ashes of the 1906 earthquake and fire and welcomed the world to visit. 

Lee Bruno, author of Panorama: Tales from San Francisco's 1915 Pan-Pacific International Exposition, will tell us about visionaries, innovators, artists and entrepreneurs whose inspiring accomplishments lifted our City and forged its modern blueprint.
