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.
