I spoke last Friday at the Berkeley City Club. It is a beautiful building: constructed and designed in 1929 by Julia Morgan (the pioneering architect) who also designed the Hearst's palace at San Simian. Some of her taste, however, can be similar to that of Albert Speer. Those in the Bay Area should visit the building: it is on Durant, two blocks down from Telegraph Ave. It is an elitist place, however; they may not let you in. Tell them I sent you, and they will surely kick you out.
