Statement of Sensitive Material

Providing physical and digital access to the materials within the Campus History Collection helps expand awareness and knowledge of Cal Maritime’s long history. The materials in the Collection are historical in nature, reflect the society in which they were produced, and may contain racial, gender, sexual, religious, and other language and imagery that are considered offensive to many. We know that such depictions were wrong and are wrong today. However, these records reflect some shared attitudes of the time in which they were created and as such are important to the social record. Not presenting them as they were originally created would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed.   


If the offensive text is not in the original, but in a finding aid, catalog record, or other description created by library employees, please contact Archives and Special Collections to bring this to our attention.
