This collection consists of approximately 450 original prints that were purchased for research and reference use for the study
of art and humanities at San José State University.
The artworks in this collection were bought for the Humanities Reading Room (also called the Art Reading Room) for reference
use in the Wahlquist Library. From November 6-17, 1978, a small selection of prints was displayed in an exhibit at Gallery
One, located in the Department of Art at San Carlos and Ninth Streets. The bulk of the Japanese woodblock prints were separated
for the exhibit and were subsequently processed as a stand-alone collection. When the Clark Library opened in 1982, both collections
were transferred to the San José Special Collections and Archives Department, which also moved to a larger facility in the
Wahlquist Library at the time.
