History/Biography

Louis H. Heilbron (1907-2006) was a labor law attorney, educator, and civic leader who participated in many of the great events of his time. Born in Newark, New Jersey to musicians Simon and Flora Karp Heilbron, he grew up in San Francisco and attended Lowell High School with the future Governor Edmund G. “Pat” Brown. He received his B.A. in Political Science at the University of California, Berkeley (1928), and graduated with a juris doctor degree from Berkeley’s Boalt Hall (1931). With the Depression raging, he worked for the California agencies of the Department of Social Welfare (secretary, 1932), the Emergency Relief Administration (assistant administrator, 1933; part-time consultant, 1934-1940 when the agency’s responsibilities were transferred to the Department of Social Welfare) and again with the Department of Social Welfare (part-time consultant, 1940-41). Concurrently, Heilbron joined the prominent San Francisco law firm of Heller, Ehrman, White and McAuliffe (attorney 1934-1948; principle labor attorney 1948-1978; retired partner 1978- ) where he remained affiliated, except for a brief period during World War II, for the rest of his life. During the war, he was the principal attorney (1942-43) for the Board of Economic Welfare. Serving as an army officer (Captain, 1943; Major, 1944-46), he helped the military coordinate labor relations in post-war Europe. After the war, he returned to his law practice. His interest in world affairs, intensified by the war, prompted him to join the World Affairs Council of Northern California (1951- ; president, 1965-67), a member of the Human Rights Commission of San Francisco (1969-75; chair, 1975), and chairman of the San Francisco Commission on Foreign Relations (1977-79). He was also a Jewish community leader and served on the boards of the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco (member, 1930’s- ; vice president, 1949?; president, 1949-52), Congregation Emanu-El (member, 1912- ; vice president, 1951- 1954?; president, 1954-1957), and the American Jewish Committee (president, 1958-60).
Heilbron had also been involved in higher education throughout his adult life. He was the assistant to the Dean of Men at Berkeley (1928-31), president of the San Francisco Public Education Society (1950-52), member of the International House at the University of California at Berkeley (vice-president, 1953-77), trustee of the Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation (1956-76), member of the California State Board of Education (1959-60; president, 1960), member of the Board of Trustees at KQED (1959-1972; vice president, 1971-72), member of the Board of California State College Trustees (1960-69; chairman, 1960-63), member of the Board of Trustees at Golden Gate University (1969- ; chair, 1979-81), chairman of the advisory board at San Francisco State University (1970-75), member of the National Commission on Academic Tenure (1971-73), member of the Select Committee to Review the California Master Plan (1971-72), and a member of the National Council on Post Secondary Accreditation (1972-86). When Heilbron was appointed by Governor Brown as the chairman of the Board of California State College Trustees, he was instrumental in the implementation of the initial Master Plan for Higher Education (1960) and the emergence of the California State University system (1960).
In retirement from his law firm (1978), he was a member of the California Historical Society (1978- ; vice president, 1981-83; president, 1983-85) and a member of the California State University Archives Advisory Committee (1979- ; chair, 1979-1988).

Scope and Content

This collection documents Louis H. Heilbron’s professional activities relating to higher education beginning with the development of the California State University (CSU) system during the turbulent 1960’s as he tackled issues that arose when changing the prevailing culture. His labor negotiation skills proved instrumental in ending the teachers’ strike at San Francisco State College (1969) where he called on students and teachers to condemn violent demonstrations and actions on university campuses across the nation that occurred during that era. The collection includes drafts or completed versions of Heilbron’s books, publications and commencement speeches which reveal his sensitivities and position on admission standards, academic governance, education policy, collective bargaining, curriculum development, and the role of CSU trustees—issues that permeate a substantial portion of this collection. Also included are extensive materials with individuals, organizations and professional associations, primarily related to the interaction of the CSU trustees and the students and faculty. These elements are detailed in his publications, with drafts or copies in this collection, including Remarks of Louis H. Heilbron, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the California State Colleges, 1960-63 (published 1963), The Uses and Abuses of Trustees (1970), The College and University Trustee: A View from the Board Room (1973), Confidentiality and Accreditation (1976) and From the Beginning: Commencement Addresses and Selected Papers (1983).
The collection also contains materials, primarily from the 1970’s to the mid-1980’s, on his affiliations with the University of Texas, Golden State University, San Francisco State University, California State University Archives and the California Historical Society. In addition, there is correspondence, reports and other materials during his tenure with the Council of Post Secondary Accreditation. There is also a substantial body of reference materials, primarily reports and booklets, concerning the same academic issues Heilbron confronted during his involvement in higher education.
Whenever possible, original folder titles have been retained and the folders kept in their original order.

CSU (California State University) 1960-2000

Physical Description: 3.9 boxes (1.63 linear feet)

Scope and Content Note

This series includes meeting minutes, notes, correspondence, newsletters, newspaper articles and publications dealing with issues of an evolving California State University system in the 1960’s. Much of the materials provide insight on Heilbron and other trustees in dealing with the volatile issues of free speech, student unrest, curriculum, collective bargaining, and faculty relations. The parameters of free speech were tested by several campus incidents including the Eldridge Cleaver experimental course at the University of California (1967); the avant-garde play, The Beard (1967) and an exhibit of nude sculptures at Long Beach State College (1968). The cases of George Murray (1968), a part-time instructor at San Francisco State College, and Bruce Franklin (1972), a student at Stanford University, delineated the concepts of academic freedom and incitement to violence. Reaction to these concepts include a four-page telegram from Governor Ronald Reagan instructing the Trustees to deal with the violence on college campuses (1967), a draft resolution outlining the Trustees position on campus violence (1967), and a letter from Heibron to Governor Reagan (1968) addressing issues from a previous letter to the trustees on youth disorder, faculty and administrative resistance to law enforcement, freedom of speech and other issues.
Other materials in the series include letters to Heilbron regarding potential college locations in Bakersfield and Ventura County (1967), establishing tuition (1967) and questionnaire results from faculty on a wide range of issues (n.d.). Faculty relations were tested with lawsuits by reassigned or dismissed professors (1967), dismissal of faculty for not signing loyalty oaths (1967), the 60-40 limitation for upper/lower ranks (1967) and the teacher’s strike at San Francisco State University (1969). These files are arranged in chronological order.

Accredidation 1971-1988

Physical Description: 4 boxes (1.67 linear feet)

Scope and Content Note

Series includes materials accumulated during Heilbron’s tenure on the Council on Post Secondary Accreditation (1972-86). Most of the materials are not written by Heilbron but pertain to the accreditation body and include correspondence, minutes, memos, briefs, draft statements, studies, reports, pamphlets, and handbooks. Some of the topics covered include legislation, recognition of schools, appeals process and confidentiality. The latter presents a challenge to the accreditation board as outlined in a policy paper Commission Actions: Maintaining Public Accountability and Confidentiality (1971) which highlights the conflict between open records and confidentiality surrounding the audit results of institutions. These files are arranged by subject and then chronological order.
