The annual conference of the Earthquake Research Affiliates, California Institute of Technology, was held on 2-3 April 1973 on the campus of the California Institute of Technology. Some of the papers presented at the conference dealt with earthquake hazards and insurance, and it was decided to publish these papers to make them more widely available. In addition, other papers dealing with the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and the 1971 San Fernando earthquake were discussed at the conference, and these papers have also been included in this publication to make them more available. The papers "Earthquakes and Fire Protection'' and "Analysis for Earthquake Insurance" were presented by J. C. Fulton and D. G. Friedman who are participating members of the Earthquake Research Affiliates program. The papers "Insurance Losses in the San Fernando Earthquake" and "Earthquake Design Criteria" were presented by G. W. Housner and P. C. Jennings, staff members of the California Institute of Technology. The paper by L. C. Baker, Jr. was originally presented at the Conference on Earthquake Risk, September 22, 1971 that was sponsored by the Joint Committee on Seismic Safety of the California Legislature; it is reproduced here, with his permission, to make it available to ERA members. The other four papers are relatively scarce items that deal with the 1906 San Francisco earthquake; copies are in the document collection of the Earthquake Engineering Research Library at Caltech.
