    Historical Background

    Some of the photos in this collection were donated by Robert Virscik, who was a construction supervisor for several of the early buildings at UCI. The photographs of the original Computer Science and Engineering Building were donated by the Assistant Dean Ron Hubbard shortly before the building was due to be demolished and replaced. This building was designed by Frank Gehry, a world-renown architect known for structures such as the Walt Disney Concern Hall. The rest of the collection was accrued from other unidentified, undated sources.
