What about the building?

The 4 story brown building on the corner of 5th and Elm in Long Beach was built in1922 and was originally the AT&T Overseas Operator Building. After the Long Beach Earthquake in 1933 the building was rebuilt and continued to be used as a telephone operator’s building.

The building stood vacant for a while and was purchased in the 1980s for conversion to an office building; the developer improved the building seismically but did not complete the project.

MHA bought the vacant property on January 2, 1990 to use for the AB 3777 program.

Dr. Mark's Writings

A note from Mark:   Since most of my writings collect dust in my loyal coworkers’ desks or in long neglected computer files, I used to describe them as “audienceless”.  But as the years have gone on some have managed to take on a life of their own, thanks to the internet or word of mouth, usually unbeknownst to me.  This website is an effort to collect all of my major writings in one, reasonably organized place where hopefully you will find them and make good use of them.  You may copy articles to share, but please give me credit for writing them and don’t charge for them. 

I’ve tried to put them in an order that makes sense to me, but, frankly, if your style of exploration is to wander here and there following your own interests instead of following someone else’s lead, feel free.  Each article has an introduction to put it in some context so you won’t get lost

We’ll try to keep adding more things as I write them.  I always enjoy feedback from readers and fellow transformation workers.
