The collection contains research files (notes, articles, clippings), bibliography cards, and picture postcards, mainly relating
to concepts of time throughout history and among various cultures. Donald C. Davidson was University Librarian at UCSB for
many years (1947-1977) and the collection reflects his longstanding interest in the study of time.
