ISN’T MY SCHOOL BEAUTIFUL? Alright so I’m a little biased but I love seeing old pictures of USC because it reminds me of the fact that I am a part of its rich history. In some respects as seen in these pictures of Doheny library and Mudd Hall of Philosophy, USC hasn’t changed a bit.
Photo 1: (ca. 1932)* - Interior view of Edward Doheny Jr. Memorial Library at the University of Southern California, showing students studying in the main reading room.
Photo 2: (ca. 1937)* - The entire inscription on the fountain reads “O stream of life run you slow or fast, all streams reach the sea at last.” This view of the Mudd Hall courtyard at USC includes the colonnade, paving stones as well as the fountain.
Photo 3: (ca. 2013)*^* - Looking northward from the University Park campus on a clear night, three university landmarks – (from left) the Bovard Administration Building tower, Waite Phillips Hall of Education and the globe-topped tower of the Von KleinSmid Center for International and Public Affairs – stand out against the skyline of downtown Los Angeles.
