UCLA History: Former President Receives Honorary Degree

As we approach Presidents Day, it goes without saying that Washington and Lincoln knew nothing about UCLA. However, UCLA did award an honorary PhD to former President Eisenhower (shown with then-Chancellor Franklin Murphy – center – and UC President Clark Kerr -right) in April 1965. (The date has also been reported as 1963. Anyone want to research the correct date?) The building in the background is Kerckhoff Hall.
