This decade was a time of great tragedy on the world stage, which touched every aspect of life at UCLA. Yet many of our treasured traditions were born in this era, from Spring Sing to the battle for the Victory Bell, as well as the founding several world-renowned professional schools. It also introduced us to the greatest coach of all time.

Since its construction in 1928, the westward expansion of the campus foreshadowed UCLA's successes in collegiate sports and the transformation of student life from commuter school to a vibrant residential community.
