The Edmond O'Neill Papers, 1891-1918, relate primarily to his career in the Department of Chemistry at the University of California,
Berkeley, and his involvement with intercollegiate athletics, and contain correspondence and office files, with a few personal
papers. Letters by O'Neill consist of mainly typed copies of his replies to professors, former students, chemists, and others
written in response to their requests for analyses and tests of fuel oil, water, cement, and other materials, or for professional
advice about conducting tests and samples, as well as information about job applicants and openings in the Department of Chemistry.
Edmond O'Neill was born in Nashville, Tennessee on December 13, 1859. Upon graduation from the University of California in
1879, he began his career there as an instructor in the Department of Chemistry. O'Neill was dean of the department from 1901
to 1912, and acting dean for 1918 and 1919. In 1907, he was appointed a member of the Executive Committee of the Associated
Students and, as such, was involved in intercollegiate athletics for several years. O'Neill retired in 1925 and died in 1933.
