    Note:
    During Park's tenure on the faculty at UC Berkeley (1955-1960), Bischoff and Diebenkorn joined him in the now historic figure drawing sessions that gave birth to the Bay Area Figurative style. Over these five years Park's art developed rapidly as earlier experiments with Abstract Expressionism culminated in painterly depictions of the human figure.

    Professor Loewenberg joined the Philosophy Department at Berkeley in 1915, but was dismissed during the McCarthy era in 1950 for refusing to take the University's controversial oath of loyalty. He was reinstated by the California Supreme Court in 1952.
