Anthony Tusler Berkeley: The Bancroft Library at the University of California, Berkeley has archived the personal papers, articles and photographs of Penngrove resident Anthony Tusler. The items were added to the library’s Disability Rights and Independent Living Movement archive. The Tusler Collection reflects his 40-year leadership in shaping the disability rights movement. Tusler’s oral history and transcription is in the DRLIM archive, along with his writings, editorials, protest buttons and beggars’ cards, papers, photography negatives and other items.

“It’s humbling to be a part of Bancroft Library’s collection,” said Tusler. “And to think our fight for civil rights joins the papers of Mark Twain, and the nugget that launched the Gold Rush.” Tusler’s work is also featured in two disability rights exhibits in Berkeley. “Patient No More: People with Disabilities Securing Civil Rights” is on display through Dec. 18 at the Ed Roberts Campus above the Ashby Bart station, 3075 Adeline St., Berkeley. “Nothing About Us, Without Us: 25th Anniversary of the ADA is on display through Feb. 12 at the Doe Library on the UC Berkeley campus.
