Description
The Photographic Laboratory Collection consists of original negatives, prints, and films documenting the history of Scripps Institution of Oceanography and UC San Diego, including the development of the campus, research, portraits, and expeditions.
Background
The Photographic Laboratory (aka Photo Lab) was established in 1949 on the campus of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) to provide photographic services to the academic community. The first Photo Lab photographer, John MacFall, was hired that year. Photography of an event, building or person could be requested by academic, administrative, or research units; the office that placed an order was then billed.
