University recieves Serna papers
The personal papers of the late Sacramento mayor Joe Serna have been donated to Sac State, where he taught for 29 years.
The collection, which includes more than 135 containers
of mementos from Serna's association with the United Farm Workers movement, his work as a Sac State government professor and his days at City Hall, arrived on campus in April.
It is a treasure trove of correspondence, proclamations
and an assortment of memorabilia, such as commemorative
gold-toned shovels used in groundbreakings, gavels and campaign signs. Once the collection is cataloged, it is expected to be a significant resource on the politics of the City of Sacramento and the Central Valley.
