Originally to be located in Palos Verdes, California, the designated location for the campus was moved to Dominguez Hills in soon to be the city of Carson, California in 1965. Asides of the high land prices in Palos Verdes, the Watts Riots had exposed the need for a campus to serve the population of South Los Angeles. In 1964 the architect A. Quincy Jones started to design the master plan for the new university. Beautifully illustrated with architectural drawings and plans throughout.
