[Identification of item], Classics Department. Reports (University Archives Record Series 301). UCLA Library Special Collections,
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 one 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 programs leading to the master and doctoral degrees were instituted.
