    Administrative History

    During the summers of 1967-1971 the University of California Santa Cruz extension program offered a series of photographic workshops entitled, Images and Words: The Making of a Photographic Book. The instructors were Ansel Adams, Beaumont and Nancy Newhall (1967-1971), Pirkle Jones (1969-1970), Robert Katz (1967), and Adrian Wilson (1968-1971).
    Students came from across the country and enjoyed a photographic exploration of Santa Cruz County via daily field trips. The goal: to learn what is involved in working with professional designers, typographers, engravers, and printers, culminating in the production of a photographic book.
    The 1967 workshop attendees produced the photo essay, Twelve Days in Santa Cruz, and the 1968 workshop attendees produced, Project FIND: Friendless, Isolated, Needy, Disabled: In Santa Cruz County, California.
    The 1970 workshop focussed on Robert Louis Stevenson's essay, "The Old Pacific Capital". Students traveled to the Asilomar Conference Center in Pacific Grove, Monterey County. The 1971 workshop was held in Yosemite National Park.
    The following are the attendees for 1967-1969. An asterisk denotes the photographers' work is in the collection.
