Record Series 261 contains the administrative files of Ernest C. Moore, University Chancellor from 1919-1936. Files include correspondence, office memoranda, minutes, agendas, reports, applications, budget requests and statements.

The title of the chief executive of the school now known as UCLA has changed many times since the school's 1919 inception as the Southern Branch of the University of California. Beginning in 1919, the Los Angeles campus was administered by the director. In 1930, the tile of this position was changed to vice president and director; and later, in 1931, to vice president and provost. From 1945-1948, the chief executive officer was called provost of the University and, in 1948, vice-president and provost. In 1952, chancellor became the official title of the office. During the periods 1942-1945 and 1950-1952, UCLA was administrated by a three-man committee.
