As California Goes, So Goes the Nation: Immigration, Agriculture, Public Policy, and Pop Culture throughout the 20th Century

About the Project



In 2017, Cal Poly Pomona's Special Collections and Archives was selected as a recipient for an 18 month federally funded grant project from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) for the project "As California Goes, So Goes the Nation." The goal of the project was to process 600 linear feet of archival collections and create 53 finding aids across all four of our main collecting areas (University Archives, Pomona Valley Historical Collection, Southern California Wine and Wine Industry Collection, and W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Library).

Collections processed as a result of this grant project are listed by collecting area on the left hand side.


Special Collections and Archives is open Monday - Friday 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM and by appointment.

Check the Library's Hours for holiday and term closures.

Advanced notice of your visit, although not required, is recommended in order to ensure availability of materials and staff assistance.
