UC Davis Library Receives Gift to Preserve Work of One of History's Top Viticulturists

December 17, 2019

The UC Davis Library received a $200,000 gift from the owners of Larkmead Vineyards, Cameron "Cam" Baker and Kate Solari Baker, to preserve the work of one of California's most influential viticulture researchers, the late Professor Emeritus Harold Olmo. The donation will allow the UC Davis Library, which has been called "the world's greatest wine library," to digitize and broadly share Olmo's work on viticulture, grape breeding and the suitability of grape varieties to different climates and terrains from around the world
