The California Aggie: A Century of Headlines

See UC Davis history through the eyes of student reporters for The California Aggie. Historic front pages dating back to its earliest years — when UC Davis was still the University Farm and the campus paper was called The Weekly Agricola — are on display.

Can't make it to campus? Can't get enough Aggie history? Follow @ThisWeekinTheAggie on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram all year for gems from the archives.

The UC Davis Library, home of the University Archives, is now engaged in a project to digitize the complete Aggie archive, then put it online in a searchable format. Learn more about the project and how you can help.

Library hours are posted here.
