Photographer's Note

At the University of California, Berkeley, there are several features labeled with the term "memorial." Here is a partial list.
- Doe Memorial Library (seen in the background of this photo)
- California Memorial Stadium
- Hearst Memorial Mining Building

This photo depicts the Memorial Glade on a late afternoon in late summer.

By far the largest open space on the central campus, the glade is a popular site for sunbathing and frisbee tossing when the weather is fine.

Amazingly, this glade sits atop a large underground extension of the library. Here's a bit more information about that from http://geoimages.berkeley.edu/geoimages/QTVR/Berkeley/MemorialGladeL.html

"This area, once the university arboretum, was for over 40 years covered with a row of "temporary" buildings, named T-1, T-2, etc. Built to handle the surge of enrollment following World War II. Most of the T-buildings were demolished in 1993 when excavation of the library pit began. The last was removed in 1995 and now not a trace remains. Under the great lawn there lies a huge five story building, housing the main library stacks. Only the glass-roofed light wells hint at its presence."
