My mention last night of UCLA students protesting a Rose Bowl snub on the San Diego Freeway in 1966 prompted an LA Observed reader to remember a photo he'd seen in the Times picture archive at UCLA. Click on the photo to see it bigger. The caption published in the L.A. Times on Nov. 22, 1966:
STUDENTS BLOCK FREEWAY--View looking south on the San Diego Freeway after all four lanes of northbound traffic were brought to a halt by rampaging UCLA students. Scene is near Wilshire Blvd.
The Times often did not include photographer credits then, and none is listed in the metadata. Thousands of old Times news photographs were transferred to the UCLA library's Department of Special Collections in a short-sighted deal years ago.
