Undergraduate student Katherine Herrera's tribute to former San Francisco mayor and Pacific alumnus George Moscone.


George Moscone '53 is one of Pacific's most notable alumni, but few students are familiar with his legacy. Professor Teresa Bergman and her students are working to change that.

A new documentary produced by Bergman, with the help of graduate students, will shed a brighter light on Moscone. The former state senator and San Francisco mayor led the way for the city to become the hub of diversity and inclusion that it's known as today. He also worked to improve accessibility for people with disabilities and played a key role in the election of Harvey Milk, the nation's first openly gay city official. Tragically, Moscone was assassinated, along with Milk, on Nov. 27, 1978.

Bergman gave Pacific undergrads the chance to explore Moscone's life through the camera. She tasked them with producing two- to five-minute mini-documentaries. This is one of those projects.
