John S. Kiewit Photography Collection

The UCSB Library Department of Special Collections is pleased to announce that it recently has received the John S. Kiewit Photography Collection (Mss 228) of several thousand slides, prints, negatives and related work, primarily containing images of the West, including Yosemite, ghost towns, and the Central Coast of California. John S. Kiewit (1948-2000) was the author of Gone to Sanctuary: From the Sins of Confusion (Capra Press, 1997). His image of the Channel Islands, featured in the book, was chosen for the UCSB Library 2004 holiday card. For selections from the collection, visit the UCSB Library's Digital Collections page.
