The University Communications photographs were created by staff photographers employed by the University of California, Irvine, University Communications. These photographs visually document the history of the UC Irvine campus. Images depict students, staff, faculty, campus events, buildings, landscapes, festivals, and the surrounding area in Orange County. Formats include photographic prints, contact sheets, slides, and negatives. Many images document the early campus area before and during construction are included. Notable events pictured include graduation ceremonies, Wayzgoose/Celebrate UCI events, the site dedication, and inaugurations of chancellors. The photographs also provide evidence of the changing landscape of UCI, which started as a large ranch area with cattle, fields, and a wide open space, and evolved into a major research university with over 17,000 students.
