Rose Bowl Honors Former Chancellor Young
The Rose Bowl Stadium dedicated the UCLA Home Locker Room in honor of Charles E. Young, former chancellor of the university and professor emeritus of public policy at the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs. Young served as chancellor from 1968 to 1997. In 1982, he selected the Rose Bowl as the home of Bruin football. “While it was 40 years ago, the decision to use the Rose Bowl Stadium as the home field of UCLA football still stands out in my mind as one of the more important decisions I made regarding UCLA Athletics during my tenure as chancellor of UCLA,” Young said. “The boost that gave to UCLA football in the 1980s under Terry Donahue and to all fans of UCLA Athletics remains vivid in my mind even today.” A Pasadena Now article noted that the ceremony honoring Young’s contributions to UCLA and the city of Pasadena comes as the Rose Bowl, opened in 1922, is marking its centennial year.
