UCSC – 50 Years Old Today!

“In these lovely surroundings will be built the University of California, Santa Cruz, a new kind of university campus powered by new ideas that are already attracting the attention of the academic world.” ~UC President Clark Kerr, April 17, 1964

On April 17, 1964, nearly 2,000 people gathered to witness the dedication of UC Santa Cruz—the UC system’s newest campus. UC President Clark Kerr was on hand, along with founding UCSC chancellor Dean McHenry, then-Gov. Edmund G. “Pat” Brown, state senators, city and county officials, and many UC Regents.

UPDATED March 2, 2017
Our good friend Ann O’Reilly (nee Collins) passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on February 22, 2017. Our thoughts are with her family and friends who loved her. We are shocked and saddened by her death and really can’t adequately express our feelings here.

REST IN PEACE ANNIE – May the Four Winds blow her safely home!
