Description
Record Series 647 contains the photographic and manuscript materials of Thelner Barton Hoover (UCLA 1930) and Louise Eleanor Brown Hoover (UCLA 1930).
Background
Thelner Barton Hoover, photographer, and his wife, Louise Brown Hoover, both UCLA Class of 1930, served UCLA in various capacities for over 50 years. Thelner B. Hoover began his career in 1921 as a student photographer for his Rockford Illinois high school yearbook. When his family moved to California, he attended Pasadena Junior College, and was the official student photographer for that campus from 1925 until graduating in 1927. T.B. Hoover attended the University of California, Los Angeles from 1927 until he graduated in 1930. He was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) fraternity. He was the official student photographer for "The Southern Campus" yearbook, the Daily Bruin (student newspaper) and the Athletic News Bureau. As a student, he financed and co-produced with Bud Graybill, a 35mm film entitled "The Bruin Review," which featured the move from the Vermont Campus to Westwood. This film was a part of the student Charter Day event in March 1930. Thelner made films of UCLA football games before Stan Troutman took over. He began a series of aerial photographs of the campus and the surrounding community in 1929 and continued this series after graduation. Thelner continued to document UCLA after his graduation. Some of his photographs are included in "UCLA on the Move" by John B. Jackson and Andrew Hamilton, and in "California of the Southland" published in 1937.
