Background
Miraloma Park Improvement Club had its first meeting of residents on Aug. 22, 1930. MPIC's purpose is "to promote the individual and collective interests [of all Miraloma Park residents]." The Garden Club* was started at the same time. By July 1946, the combined clubs had a membership of 1000. Club president, C.A. Fountain, wrote in 1944: "Miraloma Park believes wholeheartedly in the master plan and that San Francisco will be an outstanding, energetic city worthy of its illustrious children." Since its inception, the organization has vigorously pursued benefits and the retention of neighborhood character. *The Garden Club was dissolved in May of 1992.
