Over 100 linear feet of materials from 1850 to the present
Most collections in this subject category chronicle the details of rural family, community, and business life in early California, and the growth and development of the University Farm. The richness of community life is depicted in two large photograph collections – Eastman’s Originals Collection and the Westgate collection – and several manuscript collections. Other materials include journals, letters, typescripts, maps, deeds of trust and property titles, brochures, pamphlets, court records and other records.
Most of the materials are in English. For related materials, see collections under the heading of Agriculture and Animal Science.
