How much do you know about the Mission's rich history?

Welcome back to your regularly scheduled Mission history quiz.

After last week’s quiz, I was contacted by some readers who felt the questions were just a little on the easy side. In response to this outrageous slight, we are rolling out the big guns – this week’s questions are from Mission Local’s editor-in-chief, Lydia Chavez herself.

If you need any hints, click the pictures to find some clues. Best of luck!

If you missed our last two quizzes, you can find the first here and the second here.

DATA REPORTER. Will was born in the UK and studied English at Oxford University. After a few years in publishing, he absconded to the USA where he studied data journalism in New York. Will has strong views on healthcare, the environment, and the Oxford comma.

Founder/Executive Editor. I’ve been a Mission resident since 1998 and a professor emeritus at Berkeley’s J-school since 2019 when I retired. I got my start in newspapers at the Albuquerque Tribune in the city where I was born and raised. Like many local news outlets, The Tribune no longer exists. I left daily newspapers after working at The New York Times for the business, foreign and city desks. Lucky for all of us, it is still there.

As an old friend once pointed out, local has long been in my bones. My Master’s Project at Columbia, later published in New York Magazine, was on New York City’s experiment in community boards.

Right now I'm trying to figure out how you make that long-held interest in local news sustainable. The answer continues to elude me.
