Paul B. McKee, president of Pacific starting in 1933, realized that the massive government projects presented Pacific with tremendous opportunities for growth--partly because the projects would stimulate the regional economy, but also because the company could buy a share of the low-cost hydroelectric power that the dams would produce. McKee also dealt with a strong government-ownership movement in Washington and northern Oregon from the Depression through the mid-1950s. More than 100 votes were held on establishing public utility districts or municipal ownership, and Pacific won most of them. It had fairly strong support from the public because of its good service record and its efforts to stimulate economic growth in the regions it served.

Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco

The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco (FAMSF) is the city's largest public arts institution. Founded in 1970, FAMSF is comprised of the Legion of Honor in Lincoln Park and the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park. FAMSF is the city's most successful public/private partnership-a designated city department whose funding is largely raised privately.
The Legion of Honor displays a collection of 4,000 years of ancient and European art in an exquisite Beaux-Arts building overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge. Built to commemorate Californian soldiers who died in World War I, the Legion of Honor's collections include Rodin's Thinker, which sits in the museum's Court of Honor, European decorative arts and paintings, and one of the largest collections of prints and drawings in the country.

The de Young is San Francisco's oldest museum. Its collections include American paintings, decorative arts and crafts, arts from Africa, Oceania and the Americas, and both western and non-western textiles. The de Young is particularly recognized for its many educational arts programs for children and adults.

Legion of Honor History
The Legion of Honor was the gift of Alma de Bretteville Spreckels to the city of San Francisco. In 1915 Mrs. Spreckels fell in love with the French Pavilion at San Francisco's Panama Pacific International Exposition. This pavilion was a replica of the Palais de la L├ęgion d'Honneur in Paris, one of the distinguished eighteenth-century landmarks on the left bank of the Seine. Alma Spreckels persuaded her husband, Adolph B. Spreckels, the sugar magnate, to recapture the beauty of the pavilion as a new art museum for San Francisco
