The Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) Lantern Slide Collection contains 165 slides documenting the history of SIO,
including the development of the campus, research, and portraits of scientists.
The Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) Lantern Slide Collection was created and maintained by the SIO Library, during
Ruth Ragan's tenure as librarian. In October of 1973, Betty Shor and Paul Leverenz retrieved the slides from the attic of
the old library building. Two accessions of materials were brought to the SIO archives in 1981 and 1986. The SIO Archives
was later transferred to stewardship of the UC San Diego Library's Special Collections & Archives Program.
