The UC Archives: The Blue and Gold Yearbooks

fiat lux

"It has always been the purpose of the Blue and Gold to present by word and drawing a reflection of current college life -to catch and fix upon the printed page the lights and shadows of the campus."

The 1912 Blue and Gold.

"It has been our aim to bring out a book characteristic of all that is best and of most enduring value in our life here. The atmosphere of the campus, the strife of intercollegiate contests, the lighter side of our college days-these are the things we like to remember and have stored away for future years."

The 1910 Blue and Gold.

Among the collections maintained in the UC Archives of the Bancroft are copies of Cal's yearbook, The Blue and Gold. We are in the process of recreating that collection in the University Librarian's office, so that these marvelous records of the Cal campus can be on display and immediately accessible to Library visitors and alumni.

We encourage you to drop by the Moffitt Undergraduate Library exhibit cases on the main floor near the elevators (you'll need your Library card to get in!) to see representative examples of Cal's yearbooks from the teens, 20s, and 30s in the "Art of the Blue and Gold" exhibit.

The Alumni House also has their own collection of Blue and Gold yearbooks, mostly dating from the 30s and 40s. For more information on their collection, please call (888) CAL-ALUM or (510) 642-7026.
