Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Record Series 6 contains programs for cultural events sponsored by the Center for the Performing Arts during the years 1949-1988. Most of the programs are for events during the years 1961-1988.
In 1936, University of California President Robert Gordon Sproul appointed the Committee on Drama, Lectures, and Music (later known as the Committee on Fine Arts Production and currently known as the Center for the Performing Arts) to present on-campus one musical event each year. The first event sponsored by the Committee occurred on 1937 February 4 when the Vienna Choir Boys performed on the UCLA campus. During the 1960s under the leadership of Frances Inglis, the Center built a national and international reputation for the size and sophistication of its programs. In 1973, Inglis was succeeded by Edmond Harris, who increased the number of programs and encouraged works by new and avant-garde artisits. In 1979, Harris was succeeded by the present director, Pebbles Wadsworth.
