Description
The Public Information Office collection of more than 200,000 images contains the photographic materials that were used to promote the University of California, Santa Cruz, from the first invitation to the Board of Regents by the city of Santa Cruz to the recent past. Comprised of negatives, contact sheets, slides, prints, and digital files, the images in the collection document the history and achievements of all members of the UCSC community. Included are aerial and landscape photographs of the campus and neighboring Santa Cruz, construction of campus buildings, scenes from daily campus life and activities, and people and events significant to UCSC history.
Background
The mission of the Public Information Office (PIO), under the auspices of UCSC's University Relations, was to promote the University through news releases, public relations, and campus publications. The collection of photographic materials created and collected by the PIO has been used extensively in publications including the UC Santa Cruz Review, Currents, campus Viewbooks, and the General Catalog, to share with the University and the broader community the activities and achievements of UCSC faculty, students, and alumni.
