Scope and Content

These records were already in University Archives in 1984; it is not know when they were transferred to the Archives, but presumably they came from the file of the Office of Architects and Engineers on the Berkeley Campus.
The plans by Charles G. Hyde for the Strawberry Canyon swimming pool (Box 7:1) were transferred from the Water Resources Archives in Sept. 1991.
