UCLA Library acquires LAUSD historical archive (USA)

The UCLA Library has entered into an agreement to acquire the historical records of the Los Angeles Unified School District, one of the most important public education enterprises in the nation. Covering more than 100 years of Southern California public education and civic life, this extensive archive documents major aspects of district operations dating back to the late 19th century. Among its most significant contents are demographic surveys conducted in the 1920s to segregate school populations based on race, materials recording the school board's response to the landmark Crawford desegregation lawsuit filed in 1963 and decades of files documenting the district's administration of busing and desegregation programs
