Originally a 20-acre tract of land, the Los Angeles National Cemetery opened as one of 11 facilities operated by the Veterans Administration on lands shared with national veterans' homes or asylums for disabled soldiers. It was dedicated on May 22, 1889, and through the years has expanded to 114.5 acres. Those interred there are war veterans from the Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, Korean War, and other American conflicts.; The extensive portfolio of photographic artist Carol Westwood (1942-2011), a native New Yorker who lived in Los Angeles for many years, includes a diverse array of subjects: animals, nudes, American and European cities, and portraits. Additionally, she worked on special and still photography for numerous motion picture and television productions in Hollywood; the archive of her entertainment and celebrity images was distributed internationally by Gamma, Liaison International, Stone Images, and Getty images from 1988-2003.
An area of the Veteran's Administration Cemetery, also known as the Los Angeles National Cemetery, located at 950 South Sepulveda Boulevard at Wilshire Boulevard in Westwood.
