Bruins have held a longtime affinity for postcards. Since its earliest days on the Vermont Avenue campus, UCLA has been captured on cards sent to addresses across the globe or kept as treasured personal mementos. Here, we present a selection of vintage postcards showing signature scenes of UCLA over the years.
Do you have a favorite postcard to donate to our collection? Contact us at UCLAHistoryProject@UCLAlumni.net. These cards and much more Bruin lore gathered by the UCLA History Project are featured in the first definitive UCLA history book in more than 40 years. Stop by the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books at UCLA on April 24 and 25 to meet the author and learn more about the book. Be one of the first people to order your copy and receive a limited-edition bookmark.
