Description
Scope/Content: Interview with Schuyler Hadley Bassett in 2009. Bassett was part of UCI’s first freshman class when the school’s doors first opened in 1965.

In this interview he reminisces and retells the story forty-four years after the mascot election, which occurred in November of 1965.
