In 1936, UC President Robert 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 Performing Arts) to present on-campus one musical event each year. The first event sponsored by the Committee occurred on 4 February 1937 when the Vienna Choir Boys performed on the UCLA campus. During the 1960's, 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 artists. In 1979, Harris was succeeded by Pebbles Wadsworth.
Record Series 273 contains newsletters generated by the Committee on Fine Arts Productions. Files include both "UCLA Fine Arts Productions" and "The Performing Arts at UCLA" newsletters describing performing arts seasons and individual performances sponsored by the Committee on Fine Arts Productions.
