Southern Branch Renamed UCLA and Campus Moved to Westwood

Two major University events occurred in 1927

The first was the renaming of the campus from the “Southern Branch” to the “University of California at Los Angeles.” The second was the official ground breaking of the Westwood land, which was sold to the Regents for $1 million, less than one-third its value, by real estate developers Edwin and Harold Janss.
