The James L. Ruhle California Earthquake Collection consists of a small set of slides and prints documenting damage to structures
and roadways during the 1971 San Fernando earthquake, also known as the Sylmar earthquake. The slides were prepared by geologist
and photographer James L. Ruhle who taught in the Geology Department at California State University, Fullerton. This collection
of 36 slides may have been replicated in a slide set titled, "San Fernando Earthquake," one of approximately 80 sets of audiovisual
teaching aids published by James L. Ruhle and Associates in the 1970s and 1980s.
