The text pages are clean and bright. "The magazine was given the rare privilege of its own building on the UC Berkeley campus in 1957 after Earle C. Anthony donated money to the university to provide a home for the publication he had created. Although the structure beside Strawberry Creek is now occupied by the Graduate Student Assembly, the prominence of pelicans in architect Joseph Esherick’s design as well as Irene Rich’s larger-than-life pelican sculpture on the front lawn leave no doubt as to Anthony Hall’s original purpose. Still exhibiting the sense of humor that had led to the magazine’s founding more than a half-century before, Anthony fittingly arranged for a live pelican at the dedicatory ceremonies over which Berkeley Chancellor Clark Kerr presided."
