  CES Centennial Exhibit, Case 1

Exhibit Case 1 highlighted the earliest history of the University of California Citrus Experiment Station in Riverside, including the founding document, early research faculty, and the first building.

  CES Centennial Exhibit, Case 4

Exhibit Case 4 contained a selection of books on citriculture from the nineteenth century, representing the latest information available to the first researchers. The CES staff soon began to add to this body of knowledge, putting Riverside on the world map as a leader in citrus research.

  CES Centennial Exhibit, Herbert J. Webber Displayed on an easel was the official portrait of Herbert J. Webber, first Director of the Citrus Experiment Station, which graced the wall of the CES for many years before it found its new home in Special Collections.
  CES Centennial Exhibit, Easel, Aerial view This 1928 "airplane view" of the second site of the Citrus Experiment Station was also displayed on an easel in the exhibit. It shows the 1917 buildings as well as the vast surrounding agricultural land devoted to citrus and subtropical crop research, with the Gage Canal traversing it. These lands became the foundation for the University of California, Riverside campus, established in 1954.

This slideshow is a closer look at the 1928 "airplane view" of the Citrus Experiment Station. The photograph is overlayed on, and alternates with, a recent satellite image of UCR from Google Earth. A comparison of the images shows the growth of the campus.

Note - to pause the slide show on an image, place the mouse cursor over that picture.
