Table of contents What's This?
Record Series 229 contains the administrative files of the Chair of the UCLA English Department and documents from the undergraduate program, the graduate program, and the Composition Section. Materials include annual reports, announcements, event flyers, memos, statistics, and correspondence.
The Department of English was established in 1905 as part of the Los Angeles State Normal School (LASNS). Beginning with 13 faculty members, the department taught courses on grammar, composition, and literature, and had a special staff for reading, which would later become the Departments of Theater Arts and of Speech. The English major was developed after the LASNS became the Southern Branch of the University of California, with the graduate program starting in 1935.
