Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
On April 15, 1880, the California Legislature enacted Assembly Bill 374 providing for the special instruction "pertaining to Viticulture and the theory and practice of fermentation, distillation and rectification, and the management of cellars" in the University of California, Berkeley Department of Agriculture. The Department of Viticulture and Enology was established on the Davis campus in 1935 following the repeal of prohibition. The records contain correspondence, budget and expense files, travel receipts, construction and repair requisitions, meeting minutes (department, division, staff, and committee), building plans, class materials, research projects and grants, vineyard reports, extension reports, and photographs. The collection materials date from 1907-2006 with the bulk from 1913-1973.
