This campus traces its history to 1881, first as the Southern Branch of the California State Normal School. In 1919, it became the Southern Branch of the University of California, Los Angeles, as pictured here. Between 1925 and 1927, a process was underway which resulted in the school becoming the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and moving to the current campus in Westwood. The original 855 N. Vermont Avenue.address is now home to the Los Angeles City College (LACC). A rare survivor, this calendar is not seen in the trade or found in OCLC listings of institutional holdings.
