Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Record Series 301 contains the administrative files of the Department of Classics at UCLA. Included are reports, departmental reviews, committee files, meeting minutes, and event files and announcements.
UCLA's Department of Classics originated from a small department called "Classical Languages," formed in 1919 at UCLA's inception and consisting of one professor, Arthur Patch McKinlay, and six courses. In 1922, Edwin Moore Rankin was the second professor to join the department and courses in ancient Greek were added to the curriculum. By 1965, the faculty numbered twelve members responsible for courses in Latin and Greek, with another six members responsible for Indo-European studies (Hungarian, Finnish, Celtic, Irish, and the ancient languages of Sanskrit and Hittite); programs leading to the master and doctoral degrees were also instituted.
