The San Francisco Bay Chapter, founded in 1924, is second in membership size and longevity only to the Angeles Chapter, in Southern California. The chapter office is located in Oakland and serves members in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, and San Francisco Counties. The Bay Chapter has served as a training ground for many prominent national Sierra Club leaders, including former executive director David R. Brower, and past presidents Richard M. Leonard, Francis P. Farquhar, Edgar Wayburn, and Lewis Clark (all of whose papers are found in the Sierra Club Members Papers, BANC MSS 71/295 c). Rock climbers, skiers, and hikers trained on local trips went on to spearhead the club's nationally-famous Outing Program.

Finding aid available in library.
In 1970 the Board of Directors of the Sierra Club voted to place the club's historical records in The Bancroft Library. Soon thereafter the San Francisco Bay Chapter also began donating its records to The Bancroft Library. The chapter continues to transfer groups of historical records in appropriate increments.
