The collection consists of four scrapbooks documenting the history of the Jewish Student Organization of San Diego from 1947
to 1976, preliminary decades to the formation of Hillel of San Diego under the auspices of the United Jewish Federation in
1977. The scrapbooks include by-laws and other organizational records, flyers, newspaper clippings, photographs, and newsletters
advertising student events both on and off campus. Scrapbooks are filed chronologically.
