Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Fairs and Expositions collection consists of drawings, photographs, postcards and publications that document a variety of fairs and expositions nationwide. The collection is organized into five series: I. Panama-Pacific International Exposition, II. Panama-California Exposition, III. Golden Gate International Exposition, IV. California Fairs and V. Non-California Fairs. The bulk of the material is from the two California World's fairs: the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 and the Golden Gate International Exposition in 1939. The Fairs and Expositions Collection is an artificial collection assembled from smaller donations.
