Los Angeles was a rough-and-tumble frontier town in the early 1870s, when a group of public-spirited citizens led by Judge Robert Maclay Widney first dreamed of establishing a university in the region. It took nearly a decade for this vision to become a reality, but in 1879 Widney formed a board of trustees and secured a donation of 308 lots of land from three prominent members of the community – Ozro W. Childs, a Protestant horticulturist; former California governor John G. Downey, an Irish-Catholic pharmacist and businessman; and Isaias W. Hellman, a German-Jewish banker and philanthropist. The gift provided land for a campus as well as a source of endowment, the seeds of financial support for the nascent institution.
When USC first opened its doors to 53 students and 10 teachers in 1880, the “city” still lacked paved streets, electric lights, telephones and a reliable fire alarm system. Today, USC is home to more than 33,000 students and nearly 3,200 full-time faculty, and is located in the heart of one of the biggest metropolises in the world.
USC’s nickname, “Trojans,” originated in 1912. The term ‘Trojan’ as applied to USC means to me that no matter what the situation, what the odds or what the conditions, the completion must be carried on to the end and those who strive must give all they have and never be weary in doing so.
The USC Trojans football team was founded in 1888. It is a member of the Pac-10 (Pacific Ten) Conference – where it ranks 3rd in over-all team titles; as well as the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) where it is 1st. The Trojans currently have 11 National Championships, is among the top in the country’s win percentage (70%) as well as the total all-time number of wins (732) in 2005.
The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum is one of the greatest and largest stadiums in America. It combines the traditional and the modern into a premier athletic environment. USC has played football in the Coliseum ever since the grand stadium was built in 1923. In fact, the Trojans played in the first varsity football game ever held there (beating Pomona College, 23-7, on Oct. 6, 1923). That game was preceded that day by the USC freshman team’s 30-0 win over Santa Ana High. The 1998 season marked the 75th anniversary of USC football in the Coliseum Construction on the Coliseum took less than 2 years, with ground breaking ceremonies held on Dec. 21, 1921, and work completed on May 1, 1923.
