Commemorating the one-year anniversary of the 1994 Northridge earthquake, President Bill Clinton spoke at California State University, Northridge (CSUN) on January 17, 1995. Praising his administration's efforts to facilitate the recovery, Clinton stated, "I said that we wouldn't let you pick up the pieces alone, that we would stay on until the job is done. Twenty-seven federal agencies worked with state and local officials in unprecedented ways and this was the most efficient and effective disaster operation in American history. (CSUN) is a symbol of the ability of the people of this state to keep coming back (following) adversity after adversity." Seated on either side of the President's podium are, from left to right: then-L.A. Mayor Richard Riordan; Congressman Howard Berman; unidentified; then-California Lt. Governor Gray Davis; then-Transportation Secretary Federico Peña; and then-HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros. Color print, 4 x 6 in.
