A major research university located in Los Angeles

The University of California (UCLA) is a public land-grant research university in Los Angeles, California. UCLA traces its early origins back to 1882 as the southern branch of the California State Normal School (now San Jose State University).

UCLA is called a Public Ivy, and is ranked among the best public universities in the United States by major college and university rankings. As of October 2020, 25 Nobel laureates, three Fields Medalists, and five Turing Award winners, and two Chief Scientists of the U.S. Air Force have been affiliated with UCLA as faculty, researchers, or alumni. Among the current faculty members, 55 have been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, 28 to the National Academy of Engineering, 39 to the Institute of Medicine, and 124 to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

In 1969 it took part in the Arpanet, the forerunner of today's Internet. This makes it, along with three other research institutions, one of the first four participants to be connected to one another using Internet technology.

Anthony Sutton wrote in The Federal Reserve Conspiracy that he could “speak first hand of the abysmal ignorance [about inflation] of the UCLA Economics Department in the early 1960s.” [1]
