This poster describes a project to arrange, describe, and preserve two archival collections at UC Santa Cruz Special Collections & Archives: the Lick Observatory Records and the papers of Kenneth S. Norris. Both collections include essential records that highlight an innovative way of exploring nature at the time: the Lick Observatory embarked on expeditions all over the world in the early 20th century to study total solar eclipses, and Ken Norris helped establish the Field Quarter class at UC Santa Cruz, which remains to this day a unique opportunity for students to explore and study natural reserves across California for an entire academic quarter.
