Record Series 196 contains publications of UCLA's Jules Stein Eye Institute.
The Jules Stein Eye Institute was established in 1966 as part of the Center for the Health Sciences and the School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Planning for the Institute began in 1961 when the UCLA Faculty of Ophthalmology approached Jules Stein and the Research to Prevent Blindness, Inc. foundation for assistance in the development of vision science center. The building was not formally completed until March 2, 1967. However, the scientific activities of the Institute began immediately after the building's dedication on November 3, 1966. The construction, maintenance, and equipping of the Institute was largely funded through private philanthropy. This effort was led by Jules Stein who prompted support from other donors.
