Happy Birthday Ansel Adams!
In 1963, famed photographer Ansel Adams was commissioned by the University of California to photograph each UC campus. A selection of the photographs was published in Fiat Lux in 1967, as one of the centennial publications prepared by the University. Although Adams shot more than 70 images of this campus, Fiat Lux included only 10 images of UC San Diego. The Adams’ photos include iconic shots of the Scripps pier and the breezeway between Bonner and Mayer halls, as well as images of some of UCSD’s most distinguished early faculty—Margaret and Geoffrey Burbidge, Walter Munk, John Stewart, and Nobelist Harold Urey.
The UC Riverside Museum of Photography, which holds the negatives of Adams’ Fiat Lux work, made Adams’  photos of UC San Diego available for UCSD’s 50th anniversary celebration.
