By the 20th century, Berkeley began to grow although it was slow in the beginning of the century due to the earthquake in 1906. In 1909, the town of Berkeley became the city of Berkeley. It wasn’t until WWII when the city began to experience rapid growth due to the increase in jobs available because of the war. The University of California, Berkeley became very involved in the Civil Rights Movement during the 1960’s leading up to a protest in 1964, which was provoked by the university banning the distribution of political information.1   Of course, who can forget the hippie movement?  Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley became a famous place during this movement. Sitting on a sedimentary plain, Berkeley is considered part of the Pacific Coast Range that runs northwest-southwest. They also sit on the Hayward Fault and the San Andreas Fault
