Exhibit: The Fairy Shrimp Chronicles


The Fairy Shrimp Chronicles

Researched and written by eleven members of UC Merced's founding class, The Fairy Shrimp Chronicles documents the history of the founding of the newest UC campus. The project's advisor, founding faculty member Gregg Herken, drew inspiration from Solomon's House, a volume about the founding of UC Santa Cruz he helped produce as one of UCSC's founding students. The exhibit includes both volumes, planning documents, maps and photographs from both campuses and a brief timeline of the development of UCM from 1988 to 1999.
