UCLA History: Gayley View

The view from Gayley Avenue in the early 1930s.  Some of the streets in Westwood are named after Berkeley professors.  Charles Mill Gayley was a professor of English literature at Berkeley.  Hilgard and Le Conte were geologists at Berkeley.  The university engineer came up with the names of professors he had at Berkeley when he worked with the Janss company to lay out the streets.
