UCLA History: The Old Normal
There has been much talk about the "New Normal" as a description of the current depressed economy. As earlier posts have noted, UCLA evolved out of the state normal school that once stood where the LA main library is located. This blog recently posted a lithograph of the school. This is an actual photograph from the late 1800s. The school was moved to Vermont Avenue where it became UCLA's first campus. The location became the home of LA Community College after UCLA moved to Westwood in the late 1920s.
