Noel Q. King had just set up a Religious Studies Program in Makerere, Uganda, before coming to the University of California
at Santa Cruz to teach Religious Studies as Professor of History and Comparative Religion in 1967. A Committee of Studies
in Religious Studies was soon formed with Mr. King as Chairperson. Within a couple of years new courses in the history of
the world's religions and in traditional African religions were added. By 1971 Religious Studies became an offical major
granting a Bachelor of Arts degree. Mr. King was however affiliatied with the History Board. The reference collection included
here was likely to serve both communities, History and Religious Studies.
