She recalls that students were required to keep the “Berkeley Manual of Style” with them at all times. Students referred to the manual for rules of grammar, punctuation, and style.

“We learned so much in the grammar classes at Berkeley. That was a very important foundation for all communications within the business world,” Ms. McNerney said.
