Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The collection conisists mainly of correspondence sent from the office of Daniel G. Aldrich during his tenure as chancellor of the University of California, Irvine (1962-1984). It also includes correspondence congratulating Aldrich on his appointment as chancellor (1962-1963), desk calendar pages (1972-1973), daily appointment files (1967-1973) and other material.
Daniel G. Aldrich was the founding chancellor of the University of California, Irvine, serving from 1962 until 1984. Aldrich's background in agriculture and his connection with the land-grant system at the University of Rhode Island influenced his decision to design a campus in which environmental planning and community service would be crucial. After accepting the appointment of chancellor he set out to create a university faithful to the land-grant tradition, yet appropriate to the opportunities and challenges of the 21st century.
