Glenn Willson addresses campus developments from January 1965, when he joined the early faculty, until his resignation in 1975, when he returned home to England. During this period he held a number of campus appointments, including the provostship at Stevenson College from 1967 to 1975, and service as the chair of the Academic Senate; as Vice-Chancellor, College and Student Affairs; and as acting chair of the Theater Arts Committee.
Willson focuses on three aspects of UCSC history in this volume. First, he provides his recollections of the complexities in building a public, residential, college-based university campus. A second major focus is the establishment and evolution of Stevenson College. Thirdly, he frames the development of UC Santa Cruz in the cultural and political context of the 1960s.
