In 1991 a group of staff and students created an exhibit in Langson Library on cross-cultural perspectives on women and work to celebrate Women’s History Month. In subsequent years, the installation of the Women’s History Month exhibit was continued by students enrolled in Women’s Studies 160: Research Methods and Sources in Women’s Studies.

Each year students from the course were divided in two groups and asked to organize their research and exhibit around a central theme related to women’s history. In 1992 the students surveyed the growth and development of Women’s Studies as a discipline; in 1993 they challenged associations inherent in the phrase “the year of the woman”; in 1994 the focus was on global feminism; and in 1995 the exhibit explored feminism in the past, present, and future.

Included below are photographs from librarian and Women’s Studies instructor Joan Ariel’s teaching files taken during the installation of the exhibits in 1993, 1994, and 1995:

The Star Trek Association of Irvine, known as STAI by its members, was a UCI student organization dedicated to “alternate realities.” No founding documents were found in the collection, but materials indicate that the association was active from 1977 to 1991. The interests of STAI members went beyond the television program, Star Trek and extended to animation, fantasy, horror, and science fiction. The club met the first and third Fridays of every month. STAI had a library of over 2,000 books and a video library that included nearly all of the Star Trek episodes.

Camino Hall was one of the original residence halls of Mesa Court, the first resident hall community at UC Irvine.  In 1965, the first residents of Camino Hall constructed a scrapbook which documents their experiences during UC Irvine’s inaugural year.  Below are just a few pages from that scrapbook:

UCI students sitting in the hallway waiting for class, circa 1973. UCI Special Collections and Archives Volunteer Colleen Williams (and former UCI student) commented with a chuckle, “this could look like any UCI hallway today, students always sit in the hallway before class!”  It is nice to know that some things never change!Students_UCI_hallway

Baby anteater

Baby anteater hanging around UCI campus, circa 1968.

Over the years mascots have been subjected to countless dangers and humilities. Peter the Anteater is no exception. Witness here photographic evidence.
