    Historical note

    The Graduate School of Education traces its beginning to the legislative act of 3 March 1981, which authorized the opening of a branch of the San Jose State Normal School in Los Angeles. Teacher training was the primary responsibility of the "Southern Branch"; and in 1894, the Department of Education was established. In 1917, three years after the Los Angeles State Normal School was moved to its Vermont Avenue site, Ernest Carroll Moore was appointed director of the school and chairman of the Education Department. In 1919, when the Los Angeles State Normal School was incorporated into the University of California system, Moore was appointed director of the Los Angeles campus and Dean of the Teachers College, holding the latter position until 1936 when the deanship passed to Marvin L. Darsie. The Teachers College was replaced by the School of Education in 1939, which was eventually named the Graduate School of Education. Other deans have included: Edwin A. Lee, Howard E. Wilson, and Lewis C. Solomon.
