    Arrangement

    The albums were compiled by the staff of Brad Atwood, UCI's first director of publicity, for promotional use by Chancellor Aldrich, who frequently showed them to visitors in his office. The photographs have been kept in their original order in the albums, and the photo descriptions are taken from the original captions listed in the back of each album. Each print is identified first by album and then page number. Color prints are indicated in the item-level description. Printed materials are kept in chronological order within the albums but are unnumbered.
