The Herbert "Herb" Quick Collection, 1931-2006, documents the career of egalitarian Herbert Quick as a California photographer
and instructor of photography at the University of Riverside, California.
Herbert Quick was born in Manistique, Michigan in 1925. In the early 1930s at the age of six he developed an affinity for
photography, which is demonstrated through his depictions of the Seils-Sterling Circus. However, in 1943 he put photography
on hold to serve in the United States Navy. Quick received the American Campaign and Good Conduct medals for his service in
World War II.
