Description
The records of the UCSD Committee for Arts and Lectures document the activities of an early interdepartmental committee which reported directly to the chancellor. The committee planned, scheduled, publicized, and managed all events on campus, including fine arts exhibits, film presentations, performing arts, and lecture series. Later, the committee formed subcommittees for areas such theatre and dance, lectures, art, and music. The files contain annual and event attendance reports, budget notes, meeting minutes, correspondence, program descriptions, and newspaper clippings concerned with UCSD's early performing arts program and lecture series.
Background
The UCSD Committee for Arts and Lectures (CAL), part of a UC systemwide program, was organized as an interdepartmental administrative committee which reported directly to the chancellor, beginning with Herbert York in 1961. In the beginning, the committee functioned as a centralized body to plan, schedule, publicize, and manage all cultural events presented on campus and at the Art Center of La Jolla, including fine arts, performing arts, art festivals, and lecture series.
