Processed by Hollie Johnson, 2011.
Processing of the Citrus and horticulture collection was generously funded by the
Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and administered by the Council on Library and
Information Resources (CLIR). The University of California, Riverside was awarded a
Cataloging Hidden Special Collections and Archives grant from 2010-2012, "Uncovering
California's Environmental Collections," in collaboration with eight additional
special collections and archival repositories throughout the state and the
California Digital Library (CDL). Grant objectives included processing of over 33
hidden collections related to the state's environment and environmental history. The
collections document an array of important sub-topics such as irrigation, mining,
forestry, agriculture, industry, land use, activism, and research. Together they
form a multifaceted picture of the natural world and the way it was probed, altered,
exploited and protected in California over the twentieth century. Finding aids are
made available through the Online Archive of California (OAC).
