There was a nice review in yesterday's LA Times of the new history of UCLA that recently was published. Lots of old photos are included in the book. You can learn such things as while Berkeley may have been the main connection to the World War II Manhattan Project, UCLA handled the payroll!
The book can be ordered at http://www.uclahistoryproject.ucla.edu/Book/default.asp
I'd like to give you the web address of the LA Times review but the Times' website is so clunky that all you will find if you try to locate the book review - and if you are very lucky - is a blog entry of a few days ago and not the review.
