Charles D. Cushman: Nob Hill Pioneer

Below is my article on the origin and namesake of Cushman Street, located on San Francisco’s Nob Hill between Huntington Park & the Pacific-Union Club. The one-block alley street is a signpost pointing to Nob Hill’s earliest history, going back to when it was one of the city’s first post-gold rush suburbs.

The article was published in The Argonaut, the journal of the SF Historical Society. When it becomes available online, I will link it, but for now, here’s a somewhat wonky scan (with a few corrections noted).
