About the UCLA History Project
Since 2004, the UCLA History Project team has delved into the untold number of historical documents and photographs preserved in UCLA’s archives and beyond. They have interviewed numerous members of the UCLA community and searched for materials and anecdotes that were on the verge of becoming permanently lost or forgotten. Just published, UCLA: The First Century promises to be a treasure trove for Bruins all over the world.
