Title supplied by cataloger. The University of California, Los Angeles (also known as UCLA) was founded in 1881 as the Los Angeles branch of the California State Normal School. In 1919 the school obtained university status and became the Southern Branch of the University of California, located at 855 N. Vermont Avenue. In 1927 the name was changed to the University of California at Los Angeles. On May 31, 1929 the university opened its new campus in Westwood on land sold for $1 million dollars. In 1958, the name changed slightly again when the "at" was dropped, and became simply University of California, Los Angeles or UCLA. Today, UCLA has the largest enrollment of any university in the state. View of UCLA taken after the construction of the original quadrangle was completed on the Westwood campus. The view is from the bridge, over which students passed from Hilgard Avenue to the campus. On the left of the photo is Powell Library, now know as the Lawrence Clark Powell Library, built in 1927-29 and designed by architect George W. Kelham. Royce Hall, on the right, was built in 1928-29 and designed by Allison and Allison, Architects. Both buildings were designed in a northern Italian Romanesque Revival style inspired by Sant' Ambrogio in Milan (12th century). A lamppost and an American flag are visible on the center median.
