    History

    Santa Clara University, founded in 1851 by the Society of Jesus as Santa Clara College, is California's oldest institution of higher learning. It was established on the site of the Mission Santa Clara de Asis, the eighth of the original 21 California missions.

    Scope and Content

    The Santa Clara University Map Collection consists of 41 maps, drawings, surveys, and site plans of Santa Clara University, ranging in date from 1854-1982. They include color landscape drawings, University master plans, area maps of campus buildings, and early plot maps of Santa Clara College. The maps in the collection were prepared by public works officers, engineering students for class assignments, professional architects and surveyors for University planning purposes, and historians for historical research.
