Finding Aid Friday: Campus Songs and Song Books Collection

This week’s installment of our Finding Aid Friday series is the Campus Songs and Song Books Collection. This small collection contains sheet music and song books for Davis campus songs and University of California songs including: Aggie Fight Song, Big C, California Aggies Hail, Hail to California, and Sons of California. While processing this collection we discovered the campus song, We’re California Aggies.

Can you name the first song written expressly for the Davis campus? If not, the article from 1965 that is found below will give you the answer.
