Auto dealer Earle C. Anthony (1880-1961), as an engineering student at the University of California, Berkeley, was a founder of the campus humor magazine, the California Pelican, and following his successful career as a seller of Packard Automobiles in the State of California, donated funds with which to erect this headquarters for the magazine. Berkeley architect Bernard Maybeck got the commission while in his 90s, but referred the job to the young designer Joseph Esherick. Esherick, a very flexible, client-focused designer, produced a design that reflected work by Maybeck, most notably his Christian Science Church in Berkeley.
