About the Rowland Collection Website

This website provides access to the cards and documents in the Leon and Jeannette Rowland Collection in Special Collections, McHenry Library, University of California at Santa Cruz. The collection number is:  MS 051

The Rowland Collection was described by Donald Thomas Clark, the late UCSC University Librarian Emeritus, as a collection of "great historical and genealogical importance."

The most important aspect of the material from a researchers point of view is the set of approximately ten thousand index cards relating to the history of Santa Cruz County from pre-statehood through 1951. In addition to the cards the collection contains scrapbooks, pamphlets, and other research documents collected by Leon Rowland and his wife Jeannette.

Please see the Finding Aid to the Leon and Jeannette Rowland collection for a full description of the collection and a searchable PDF of the Rowland Card Database.
