As part of Oxy's 125 anniversary celebration, the Library is hosting a special viewing of and reception for "Building Occidental: The Road to Eagle Rock" for our neighbors in Eagle Rock, Highland Park and Boyle Heights, the three communities most closely tied to Oxy's formative years. 
"The Road to Eagle Rock" tells the story of the formative years of Oxy in an pictorial essay featuring rare historical photos of campus life between 1887 to 1914. Exhibit designer Eric Warren '69 (President of the Eagle Rock Valley Historical Society) and fellow curators Dale Ann Stieber and Anne Mar of Special Collections will be your guides to take you back in time to Oxy's first 25 years.
