The Vernon I. Cheadle Papers contain biographical material, correspondence, subject files, and academic files from Cheadle's
time as a faculty member before and after his days as Chancellor.
Vernon Irvin Cheadle was the Chancellor of the University of California, Santa Barbara campus from 1962 to 1977. During this
time, he oversaw the growth and development of the campus from a small, local college to an internationally recognized university.
Cheadle strengthened ties between the university and the surrounding community. He also steered the campus through the turbulent
period of protests and riots in the late 1960s and 1970s. As Chancellor, Cheadle made many contributions to UCSB, and he continued
to serve the university following his retirement.
