  • L'exposition internationale du Golden Gate (en anglais : Golden Gate International Exposition) a lieu en 1939 puis en 1940 à San Francisco en Californie pour célébrer l'ouverture récente des deux principaux ponts enjambant la baie de San Francisco, le Bay Bridge et le Golden Gate Bridge. L'exposition a lieu du 18 février 1939 au 29 octobre 1939, puis rouvre du 25 mai 1940 au 29 septembre 1940. Elle se tient sur Treasure Island, une île artificielle rattachée à Yerba Buena Island, où se rejoignent les sections du Bay Bridge respectivement connectées à Oakland et San Francisco. Construite par le gouvernement fédéral, Treasure Island aurait dû devenir un aéroport pour le service Pacifique des hydravions de Pan American Airlines, mais avec la Seconde Guerre mondiale l'île est transformée en base navale, que l'US Navy occupe de 1941 à 1997.

dbp:text
  • Washington is remote from the Pacific. San Francisco stands at the doorway to the sea that roars upon the shores of all these nations, and so to the Golden Gate International Exposition I gladly entrust a solemn duty. May this, America's World's Fair on the Pacific in 1939, truly serve all nations in symbolizing their destinies, one with every other, through the ages to come. (en)
  • As the boundaries of human intercourse are widened by giant strides of trade and travel, it is of vital import that the bonds of human understanding be maintained, enlarged and strengthened rapidly. Unity of the Pacific nations is America's concern and responsibility; their onward progress deserves now a recognition that will be a stimulus as well. (en)
