Description
The collection consists of maps, architectural drawings, blueprints, reports, photographs and administrative files relating to the development of campus infrastructure at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and UC San Diego.
Background
The Office of Architects and Engineers (OAE) was responsible for the overall coordination of the UC San Diego campus building program. Construction projects were prioritized within the University of California's statewide building program, and then distributed to the appropriate OAE for management and completion. The UC San Diego office opened in 1957 under the direction of J. W. Tippetts, Building Program Coordinator. He was succeeded by Mac Alfred Cason, formerly the Chief Architect for Los Angeles County, in 1960. Prior to 1957, UC San Diego campus buildings and improvements were managed by OAE staff at UC Berkeley and UC Los Angeles.
