126 Barrows Hall

From its beginnings, The Bancroft Library Pictorial Collection served primarily to illustrate text. However the purchase of the Robert B. Honeyman Jr. Collection of Early Californian and Western American Pictorial Material in 1963 took it beyond the illustrative. This lecture is an overview of the collection from its beginnings to its present stature with approximately eight million items.
