Series 1: Architectural and Transportation Barriers, 1973-1991, undated

Scope and Content Note


Arranged hierarchically and chronologically.
This series chronicles Eric Dibner's work on architectural and transportation barriers through notes, flyers, meeting minutes, correspondence, architectural sketches and blueprints, publications, and photographs. The materials cover a broad range of activism from general information to specific cases.
The series is divided into geographical sub-series: General, National, State of California, and San Francisco Bay Area. General includes Dibner's accessibility presentations, as well as general accessability clippings. National contains records on organizations such as the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board. State of California consists of information on building standards, the Office of the State Architect, and the California Association of the Physically Handicapped (CAPH).
San Francisco Bay Area information is further divided into Bay Area subjects and cities. BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) includes an access study as well as an accessibility lawsuit. Market Barriers contains documentation on the campaign and lawsuit against grocery store cart barrier gates. Berkeley materials include work with Grey Panthers housing committees, the Berkeley Housing Coalition, and the California School for the Blind and Deaf. University of California, Berkeley contains materials on campus access, the Coordinating Committee on the Removal of Architectural Barriers, and accessible housing. Oakland materials include complaints of accessability in Oakland restaurants, and files concerning the Oakland Housing Authority. San Francisco records consist of information on the protests against inaccessible screenings of Coming Home, a film about a disabled veteran, at the Regency Theaters, and also include a public buildings accessibility survey.
