The records include meeting minutes of the Humanities Cabinet, the Humanities Executive Committee, and the faculty; and material relating to the Humanities Studio (formerly known as the Language Lab and Humanities Instructional Resource Center), which include newsletters, correspondence, planning documents, annual reports, documentation on grant funded projects, press clippings and publicity, teaching materials, administrative files, and digital media.

The Division of Humanities at the University of California, Irvine was founded in 1965 and was one of five liberal arts divisions when the campus opened. Samuel McCulloch, the founding dean of Humanities, was appointed in 1963 and created four departments that would serve as the foundational core of the Division: English and Comparative Literature, Foreign Languages and Literature, History, and Philosophy. Classics was later added as its fifth department under the direction of Professor Theodore F. Brunner. Under Dean McCulloch, the division also enrolled its first graduate students to its M.F.A. Programs in Writing.
