    Historical Note

    The current Classics Department at UCLA originates from a small department called "Classical Languages," formed in 1919 at the inception of UCLA and consisting of the professor and six classes. In 1922, a second professor joined the department and classes in Ancient Greek were added to the curriculum. By 1965, the faculty numbered 12 members responsible for courses in Latin and Greek and another six members responsible for Indo-European studies (Hungarian, Finnish, Celtic, Irish, and the ancient languages of Sanskrit and Hittite), and the department has instituted programs leading to the master and doctoral degrees.

    Scope and Content

    Record Series 307 contains the records of committees within UCLA's Classics Department. Files include the minutes and correspondence of the foreign language committee (1986), letters and science planning committee (1986), and subcommittee on implementing foreign language requirements (1984-1985). This collection also includes faculty committee assignments (1969-1986).
    This is an active record series; additional University records are expected to be added.
