Oral History Series Vol. 22 George G. Mader

In this oral history, George Mader describes the early involvement of land use planners in managing earthquake hazards. He took part in the first surface fault hazard zoning in the world, the invention of development density measures for hazards such as landslides, and seminal studies to document how regions re-build and recover from earthquakes. In his long career he worked as a planner with San Mateo County and with Spangle Associates, served as a member and chair of the California Seismic Safety Commission, and taught at Stanford University. In telling the story about his life and career, George recounts how planners got involved in the earthquake field several decades ago and why their discipline assumed a key role in the movement to confront and reduce earthquake risks. Published 2014, 111 pages, ISBN 978-1-932884-62-3
