Oakland Tribune

From its pioneering days in the late 19th century, through the Pulitzer Prize-winning work during the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, the Tribune has maintained a remarkable tradition of excellence in photojournalism. The Tribune collection is a major source for historical documentation of the Bay Area during the 1960s and 1970s. It is rich in images of protests at UC Berkeley, including the Free Speech Movement, the antiwar movement during the Vietnam war, and People's Park.

In 1995, the Oakland Tribune newspaper donated to the Oakland Museum of California its collection of news negatives and photographs, also known as its photo “morgue.” The collection, with about 3,000 negatives and a million photographs, documents the history of the Bay Area and California from the early part of the century through the 1990s.
