Description
Record Series 3 contains the administrative files of the Committee on Sites for the Southern Branch of the University of California (now called University of California, Los Angeles), with maps and photographs of potential sites. The Committee on Sites for the Southern Branch was created by UC Regent Edward A. Dickson to help select the permanent campus of the University of California's Southern Branch. On December 2, 1924 UC President W. W. Campbell appointed seventeen citizens of the Los Angeles area to serve on this committee. Out of more than 100 proposed sites, on March 21, 1925 the Board of Regents voted to select the Beverly Site (now Westwood) for the permanent campus of the University of California, Los Angeles.
