Childhood home of Stewart Brand, author of The Whole Earth Catalogue, published 1968-1998

The catalogue listed items to aid in self sustainability, which was in tune with the counterculture lifestyle at the time

Whole Earth did not sell the items but rather listed the vendors and prices

The catalogue evolved from an earlier project of Stewart Brand, who in 1966 initiated a public relations campaign to have NASA release the satellite view of the sphere of earth as seen from space, which was the first image of the “Whole Earth”
