Description
This black and white, silent film footage captures two key events in the history of Pepperdine University: the dedication ceremony of George Pepperdine College held at the original Los Angeles campus on September 21, 1937 and the first Pepperdine College graduation held June 6, 1938. The dedication ceremony features George Pepperdine and other college officials as well as special guests Frank Merriam, Governor of California, and Frank Shaw, Mayor of Los Angeles. Between these two events, the film features children at play, including the family of Jimmy Lovell, a longtime friend of the Pepperdines and supporter of the university.
