"Creed's Bookstore, (was) then located in the block of stores that stretched at your right as you came out of Sather Gate toward Telegraph Ave.  Creed's, besides selling textbooks, was an extensive old-book store stretching back through a number of rooms, all with shelves up to near the ceiling and piles of unshelved books on the floor. It was patronized by the best of Berkeley's literary lights and some from San Francisco, along with UCB students and professors."

-James Cahill, author of the comic opera, A Day at Creed’s, writing about Creed's Bookstore in the 1930s and 1940s.
