The bulk of the collection was accumulated and maintained by the UCSB University Libraries Reference Department as a vertical
file for researchers, then later transferred to the Department of Special Collections. Related materials have been incorporated
into the collection and continue to be added. The collection is arranged alphabetically by topic and consists primarily of
newsclippings, along with other printed materials such as reports, newsletters, pamphlets, and flyers.
