L.A. Endowment

Author Carolyn See has established a $100,000 endowment at UCLA for the study of Los Angeles and Southern California literature.

See’s endowment will allow graduate students to consider other possibilities in their study of literature beyond just Renaissance or New England literature, [English chair Thomas Wortham] said.
“We have tended so much, in California and Los Angeles, to look elsewhere that sometimes we miss the brilliance in our own backyard,” he said.
