Description
The University of Southern California began as a mustard field in what was then "West" Los Angeles with a class of 53 students and 12 teachers. Its first president was Marion Bovard who served the university from 1880 to 1891. As of 2017, there have been ten more Presidents after Bovard, with Rufus B. von KleinSmid (1921-1947) serving the longest. This small collection consists of invitations, programs, lists of attendees, and other ephemera pertaining to the inaugurations of three of USC's past presidents: Norman Topping (1958-1970), Rufus B. Von KleinSmid (1921-1947), and James H. Zumberge (1980-1991).
