UCD history book sales benefit local museum

By From page A3 | April 17, 2013

The Hattie Weber Museum of Davis will celebrate Picnic Day by selling copies of the history-minded person’s ideal souvenir of the day — Arcadia Publications’ new book about the history of UC Davis.

Dennis Dingemans, museum director and one of the book’s authors, will be at a table on the museum’s front porch from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday to sell and to autograph copies of  the book. Among the book’s 231 images are chapter 7’s 20 vintage photographs of the Picnic Day event through the years. All profits benefit the museum, which is at 445 C St. in the northeast corner of Central Park.
