Famous Berkeley High alum: Thornton Wilder! The mini-mural mentions his being the author of the novel The Bridge Over San Luis Rey and the play The Matchmaker, but many people may know him best as the author of Our Town. The mini-mural also reports that Wilder was in Berkeley High’s class of 1910, but other sources (e.g. this site here) have him graduating in 1915.
