The University Library: An Illustrated History

San Francisco

Interior of Bacon Art and Library Building, 1881.

During the summer, a Library history committee has been at work preparing a special permanent exhibit on the history of the University Library that should be completed in mid-Fall. The exhibit us being installed in an area near the Brown Gallery on the north side of the Doe Library Building. In this issue of Bene Legere, you can read about the Library's early years in the article on our first full time University Librarian, Joseph Rowell. During the creation of this exhibit many extremely interesting photographs and documents were discovered in the collections of the University Archives of the Bancroft Library. We are pleased to share one of those historic images.
