An Oral History of the University of California, Santa Cruz

UC Santa Cruz's Regional History Project is proud to announce the publication of Seeds of Something Different: An Oral History of the University of California, Santa Cruz, a masterful two-volume history weaving together first-person accounts of the campus's evolution, from the origins of an audacious dream through the sea changes of five decades. More than two hundred narrators and a trove of archival images from Special Collections & Archives contribute to this dynamic, nuanced account.

Accompanying the publication of Seeds of Something Different is a companion website featuring additional selections from the University Archives. Learn more about the book, the companion website, and how to purchase your copy of Seeds.
