The Mission Inn

The Mission Inn is very similar to some of the 21 Spanish Missions located throughout California. It is also a National Historic Landmark and one of the prestigious Historic Hotels of America.

Booker T. Washington Bust

In 1881 Booker T. Washington founded the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute in Alabama, it focused on teaching agricultural skills to African Americans. While Washington was more of a pragmatist regarding the problems the African American race was facing at the time, W.E.B. DuBois was more of a utopian socialist; this difference probably stems from the differences in their schooling.

Frank Miller Statue

In my opinion, the government of America was correct in making the Mission Inn a historical landmark due to its age and the mass of historical artifacts and tributes located there.

Taft Chair!

The Progressive Era was a response to laissez-faire economics. It led to reforms such as the commission plan, direct primary, direct election of senators, the 19th Amendment, child labor laws, health and safety codes, and the 18th and 21st Amendments (Prohibition).

Teddy Roosevelt

In my opinion, Teddy Roosevelt's greatest accomplishment was the conservation of wildlife. Conserving our environment is more vital now than ever before, due to global climate change and pollution. Who knows where we'd be concerning our ecosystems if we hadn't started with his national parks?

International Rotunda

The US finally entered WWI because of a culmination of our business links with the Allies, the sinking of Lusitania (a passenger ship with 128 Americans), the Zimmerman Telegram, and Germany's unrestricted submarine warfare.

Chinese Pavilion

Most immigrants from China were processed on the West Coast at Angel Island. The Chinese Exclusion Act was passed because it was believed that the massive influx of Chinese immigrants would disrupt cities.

Surrealism

Surrealism was an art movement of the 20th century that focused on avant-garde images bursting with creativity, often by juxtaposing multiple unlike things. The above picture is surrealism because of it's comparisons; pop art (comic book style) characters interacting on a background of mac'n'chesse and an space shuttle taking off.

Fox Theater

3 major differences between movie experiences today and in the 1920's are color pictures, surround sound, and actual spoken dialogue between characters (not like silent films).
