Jackie Robinson and UCLA, 1939-1941

Wednesday, October 22, 2014 - 8:00am to Friday, December 19, 2014 - 5:00pm

The Common Book for 2014 is I Never Had It Made by Jackie Robinson, who attended UCLA from 1939-1941 before becoming the first African-American baseball player in Major League Baseball.

Although every student’s undergraduate experience is unique, the goal of  this exhibit—drawing on the collections of University Archives—is to introduce the viewer to aspects of campus life that all UCLA students would have experienced during the years when Jackie was a student.

All materials on display are a part of the University Archives in Library Special Collections.
