Record Series 1 contains minutes of the Board of Trustees meeting, Los Angeles State Normal School, dating from 1887-1919.
Due to a growing demand for trained teachers and limited space at the State Normal School in San Jose, a second State Normal School was established in Los Angeles in 1881. On March 14, 1881, California Senate Bill 187-an Act to establish a Branch State Normal School in Los Angeles was signed into law by Governor George C. Perkins. The first section of the legislation stipulated that, "There shall be established in the County of Los Angeles a school, to be called the Branch State Normal School of California, for the training and educating of teachers in the art of instructing and governing in the public schools of this state." By 1913 there were six locations of the California State Normal School system including San Jose, Los Angeles, Chico.
