Saving Old Merritt: An Oakland Neighborhood Preserves a Landmark.
Miller, Kirstin
Orion Afield: Working for Nature and Community, v5 n2 p25-27 Spr 2001

Community strategies included publishing a monthly newsletter, attending meetings, replacing city politicians, and getting the building registered as a historical landmark. (TD)
