Lecture & Book Signing 'Levi Strauss: The Man Who Gave Blue Jeans to the World' by Lynn Downey in the Museum's Carriage House

Angels Camp, CA...Blue jeans are globally beloved and quintessentially American. They symbolize everything from the Old West to the hippie counter-culture; everyone from car mechanics to high-fashion models wears jeans. And no name is more associated with blue jeans than Levi Strauss & Co., the creator of this classic American garment.





As a young man Levi Strauss left his home in Germany and immigrated to America. He made his way to San Francisco and by 1853 had started his company. Soon he was a leading businessman in a growing commercial city that was beginning to influence the rest of the nation. Family-centered and deeply rooted in his Jewish faith, Strauss was the hub of a wheel whose spokes reached into nearly every aspect of American culture: business, philanthropy, politics, immigration, transportation, education, and fashion.

But despite creating an American icon, Levi Strauss is a mystery. Little is known about the man, and the widely circulated “facts” about his life are steeped in mythology. In this first full-length biography, Lynn Downey sets the record straight about this brilliant businessman. Strauss’s life was the classic American success story, filled with lessons about craft and integrity, leadership and innovation.

2-3pm on January 7th

    Old Levi would be spinning in his grave if he knew how Levi Strauss & Co. products were being marketed today.

    I must admit, that was the first, beautiful rack, that I stared at for a long time, drooling over and wishing I could rub my hands and fingers on, to feel every curve over and over that wasn't on a female.

Levi Straus company donates millions to gun control efforts every year. Their jeans are made in third world countries in sweat shops. Their product is crap. If you want quality denim look at an American owned and made company like Diamond Gusset Jeans.

    If Kautz, 52, had been able to claim it as an official trophy, he could have added it to his long list of his self acclaimed accomplishments detailed on the website of his family’s Lodi grape growing business, Ironstone Vineyards........HEY everybody look at Jack and all of the amazing things he has accomplished.... not in the record book yet but if everyone calls hm and tells him what an awesome amazing person he is maybe he will stop
    Breaking the law to get attention......
