The Association of University Architects was founded in Chicago in June
1955. The University of California has been active in the AUA since its
earliest days. Robert J. Evans, then UC-systemwide University Architect,
was the founding president, and campus architects from Berkeley, UCLA,
Irvine, San Diego, and (now) Santa Cruz have served as president. Currently
