The Disabled Students' Program Photograph collection includes images of events and individuals associated with the program. Formats include negatives and prints in black and white and color.
In 1962 Edward V. Roberts became the first student with severe mobility impairments to live on campus in the Cowell Hospital. Following Roberts's successful first year, the University admitted John Hessler, the second student with a severe mobility impairment. By October 1967, there were seven severely physically disabled students living in Cowell Hospital, and Carl J. Ross, the hospital administrator, proposed a program to serve ten to twelve disabled students. The California Department of Rehabilitation funded the Cowell Residence Program in 1968.
