We’re pleased to announce that the Paul K. Stumpf Slides of the University of California, Davis and the City of Davis are now online. Paul K. Stumpf (1919-2007) served as Professor of Biochemistry at the University of California, Davis from 1959-1984. While serving as a member of the Campus Building Committee during the 1960s, he photographed construction of various buildings on campus. These slides are part of a slide show that Stumpf assembled in 1990 to illustrate the “then and now” images of the University of California, Davis campus. Several images of the city of Davis are also found in the collection.

You can view the images via the finding aid on the Online Archive of California and via Calisphere.

Here is one of the images from the collection. Can you identify the location? We’ll give you a hint: this building is currently in a similar state today.
