History of Clark Kerr Campus

Clark Kerr campus

Constructed in the 1930s, Clark Kerr Campus was originally a school for the deaf and blind until 1982, when the site came under University housing ownership.

Dr. Clark Kerr served as Berkeley's first Chancellor from 1952 to 1958 and President of the University of California from 1958 to 1967. He is known for standing up for professors' and students' rights during the 1950s - 1960s which led to opposition from California Governor Ronald Reagan.

In 1981, the City of Berkeley recognized Clark Kerr Campus as a landmark (#42). The following year, 1982, Clark Kerr Campus was placed on the National Register of Historic Places (#82000962).

Currently, some of the land on the CKC property is dedicated to non-profit work, such as Redwood Gardens, a home for senior citizens established by the City of Berkeley in 1986.
