    Historical note

    Gold Shield Alumnae of UCLA was founded in 1936 by Ann Sumner and elven other alumnae. Their purpose was "to foster good will and friendliness" between the young Westwood campus and the "town." Originally, members assisted with university functions and presented salons to introduce outstanding faculty to the community. In 1939, Gold Shield responded to the Alumni Association's need for assistance with its new Scholarship Program. Since that time, the organization has funded not only hundreds of scholarship awards but faculty prizes and oral history interview projects and programmatic support.
