Finding Aid Friday: Office of Ceremonies & Special Events Collection

This week’s feature in our Finding Aid Friday series is the Office of Ceremonies and Special Events Collection. This collection contains materials related to UC Davis campus ceremonies, dedications, lectures, programs, and receptions. The materials, which span the years 1922 to 2013, include programs, invitations, flyers, brochures, correspondence, and meeting minutes.

The collection contains materials for annual events such as Charter Day, the President’s Reception, Distinguished Teacher’s Symposium, and the Faculty Research Lecture, as well as events such as Prince Charles visit to campus.

Below is an image of the program for the November 12, 1928 dedication of the Agricultural Engineering (now Walker Hall) and Animal Science (now Hart Hall) Buildings.
