When I Think of Home: Images from L.A. ArchivesMain MenuIntroductionThe greater Los Angeles area is on the traditional lands of the Gabrielino/Tongva, Chumash, Fernandeño Tataviam and Yuhaaviatam/Maarenga’yam (Serrano) peoples. We acknowledge their presence here since time immemorial and recognize their continuing connection to the land, to the water and to their ancestors.L.A.

Student donations funded the massive fireplace: bricks were sold for $1 and engraved with the names of purchasers. Seniors offered the bronze motto, juniors the large bronze T, sophomores the mantel, and freshmen the andirons. For many years students gathered around the beloved fireplace for recreation, relaxation, and scientific discussions.plain2020-10-14T12:51:24-07:001936Caltech Archives and Special CollectionsCopyright Unknown -The copyright and related rights status of this Item has been reviewed by the organization that has made the Item available, but the organization was unable to make a conclusive determination as to the copyright status of the Item.

Our collections include the papers of Caltech researchers; photographs, film, audio, video, websites, and publications documenting Caltech’s history; scientific instruments characteristic of research at Caltech; and rare books anchored by the Rocco Collection of early modern physics and astronomy. We have been collecting oral histories of Caltech faculty and other affiliates since 1979, and have published approximately 200 transcripts on the web. Caltech has also made publicly available on the web the papers of astrophysicist George Ellery Hale, founder of Mount Wilson Observatory; aeronautical engineer and pioneer of human-powered flight Paul MacCready; and Nobel Prize-winning particle physicist and molecular biologist Donald Glaser. https://archives.caltech.edu/structured_gallery2020-10-09T11:56:24-07:00Likhita Sureshfa36a2f3506609c5e2c064df653783c84fd35c54
