When UCI opened to students in the Fall of 1965, there was one library on campus. That library (now Langson) opened with over 100,000 volumes. With considerable effort a small staff built that collection and planned the library services that were available on opening day. The ten staff members of the UCI Libraries in February 1964 are seen below on the steps outside of their first temporary quarters in the Douglass Astropower building. The staff at the time were:
1st row: John E. Smith (University Librarian)
2nd row, left to right: Noni Madison, Kirby (___), Mary Reeves
3rd row, left to right: Robert E. Thomson, Gail Askew, Edwin Tomlinson
4th row, left to right: Dorothy Blurton, Tom Reines, Jacelyn Edwards
And below is the first Friends of the Library group, also in 1964.
Seated, left to right: Muriel Reynolds, Helen Smith, A.A. Kroch, Elaine Mittelman, and Debra Shambron
