Earlier this year the UCSF Chancellor Susan Desmond-Hellman, MD, MPH sent out a message to the campus community announcing key events that will be organized to mark the 150th anniversary of the founding of UC San Francisco. The UCSF’s sesquicentennial celebration will start this year with the Founders Day events in April and continue through May 2015. Additional details can be found on the website that was developed for the 150th anniversary.
For the past several months the archives staff has been working on several projects that document and bring to life the rich history of UCSF. Our stories about these projects will be accompanied by the UCSF Anniversary Logo, and today we are publishing the first installment from these series.
