    Scope and Contents Note

    This collection of fifty-seven images is a brief photographic survey of the history of the University of California from its inception until 1968, prepared at the time of its centennial in that year.
    The photographs were selected mainly from those assembled for The University of California: a Pictorial History, by Albert G. Pickerell and May Dornin, published in 1968, which contains several hundred images from various sources. Sources of the photographs are not noted on these reproductions.
    Apparently three sets of these photographs were prepared, mounted and captioned for exhibit on the various campuses of the university in 1968-1969. Captions have been transcribed as found with the pictures, except for a few obvious errors or inconsistencies. It is assumed that this was a project of the University's Centennial Publications Office.
