Roy Boekenoogen collected a remarkable archive of Santa Cruz memorabilia, which ranged from sea shells to antique cameras, from bottles to butter churns. Interviewer Elizabeth Calciano described his house as a "fantasy-land for antique hunters, for historians, and for the merely curious." Many of his historical photographs were acquired by the University Library in the 1960s. In this oral history interview Boekenoogen discussed his collections and Santa Cruz history in the early to mid-twentieth century.
