Record series 362 contains the administrative files of Marjorie Day, Assistant Dean for Programs at UCLA's Graduate School
of Education. Files regard accreditation, admissions, committees, courses, degree programs, curriculum, credentials, diversity
matters, personnel, Spencer Foundation Grants, and UCLA's University Elementary School. Materials include correspondence,
minutes, reports, memos from the Dean to faculty and from the University Chancellor to the Dean, newsletters of the California
Council on the Education of Teachers, and requests for courses.
The Graduate School of Education traces its beginning to the legislative act of 3 March 1981, which authorized the opening
of a branch of the San Jose State Normal School in Los Angeles. Teacher training was the primary responsibility of the "Southern
Branch"; and in 1894, the Department of Education was established. In 1917, three years after the Los Angeles State Normal
School was moved to its Vermont Avenue site, Ernest Carroll Moore was appointed director of the school and chairman of the
Education Department. In 1919, when the Los Angeles State Normal School was incorporated into the University of California
system, Moore was appointed director of the Los Angeles campus and Dean of the Teachers College, holding the latter position
until 1936 when the deanship passed to Marvin L. Darsie. The Teachers College was replaced by the School of Education in 1939,
which was eventually named the Graduate School of Education. Other deans have included: Edwin A. Lee, Howard E. Wilson, and
Lewis C. Solomon.
