WOODBURY UNIVERSITY : New Dorms to Finally Be Completed

Four three-story stucco and brick dormitories that have been under construction since last summer are soon to become home to 128 Woodbury University students.

Campus officials said the dorms, which are consistent with the Burbank school’s traditional Spanish architecture, are to be completed by April 30. Students will begin moving in a week later.

Los Angeles County sold $1.75 million in bonds to pay for the dorms. The university, part of which is in county territory, will repay bond purchasers with interest over a 30-year period.

University officials projected when construction began last summer that the project would be completed by Thanksgiving and that students would be able to move in soon after. But Jack Nelson, vice president of campus services, said the project ran into a variety of delays in getting necessary permits.

The four buildings are connected by balconies and walkways. Each floor houses 12 students with varying arrangements of four double rooms and four single rooms that are furnished with desks and beds. Students share a common living area and restroom on each floor.

Although students will be required to move into the dorms during the middle of the spring quarter, which ends June 15, Nelson stressed that the school would “make the move as easy and worry-free as possible for the students.”

Moving trucks and vans will be provided for students who were assigned to corporate apartments in Burbank while the dorms were being built.

Mary McGhee, housing director, said students began applying to live in the on-campus dormitories in March, 1989, and all rooms have been filled. Students living in the dorms will pay between $900 and $990 per quarter.

The new dorms, along with the old 56-room dorm, will allow about one-third of Woodbury’s traditional college-age students to live on campus. Woodbury’s enrollment is 850.

“We discovered that several students who would have applied to Woodbury didn’t because of lack of housing,” McGhee said. “Students are much more willing to stick around and do things on campus when they live in the dorms. We expect the student organizations to grow because more students will be here to participate.”

The university also plans to build additional dormitories in the future, college officials said.

“The dorms are in the shape of a half-circle,” she said. “When the money is available, similar dorms will be built to complete the circle and create a park-like atmosphere.”

L.A. Stories from Woodbury University

The course curriculum is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary mix of Los Angeles history and literature. A core component of the class are field trips to neighborhoods like Downtown, Boyle Heights, Koreatown and Leimert Park. The course is designed to "introduce students to a wide variety of L.A. fiction, film and historiography, and in addition, to expose them to new neighborhoods through extensive site visits," writes Professor Megan Kendrick, my partner in this endeavor. For the course, students wrote short essays and poems as well as a more extensive research paper on what we called "urban types."

Megan Kendrick earned her PhD in history at USC and worked closely with the great California historian Kevin Starr during her graduate studies. Aside from also being a native Angeleno, she is one of the few people in Southern California that love and know the terrain as much as me. We had an excellent semester and an outstanding group of engaged students. This week L.A. Letters highlights the spirit of the class and shares some of the observations, insights, and research generated by our students.

For those that do not know, Woodbury University is in Burbank. Though Woodbury has been around since 1884, it has grown and become much more known in the last few decades. Architecture, Graphic Design, and Fashion Design are three very popular subjects at the school and several of the students enrolled in L.A. Stories came from these majors. There were close to 20 students enrolled and they were a mix of international students, a few from across America, and quite a few locals representing hometowns from Silver Lake to Santa Clarita, Whittier to Glendale.

Before sharing their thoughtful revelations, a few words must be said about how the class came into existence. Professor Kendrick explains that "The 'L.A. Stories' course is the creation of Elisabeth Sandberg, PhD (Professor of English in the College of Transdisciplinarity) and Emily Bills, PhD (Coordinator of the Urban Studies Program and Managing Director of the Julius Shulman Institute)." The class has been offered several times since it began in 2010 as "Layered Landscapes of Los Angeles." Each new version of the class has added new texture and focus.

The class offers a great wide-angle snapshot of the city and in many ways, some would call it, "Los Angeles 101." One student told us that the class "would be useful as a required course for incoming out-of-state freshmen as means of enhancing the transition into the university." The interdisciplinary nature of the course provided the perfect platform to equally examine the physical, historical and literary landscapes of Los Angeles. As someone who has been giving professional city tours around Los Angeles since 1997, there's nothing I love to do more than simplify the sprawling complexity of Los Angeles.

In addition to the assigned readings and site visits, students were asked to choose a research topic that connected to their own interests within the city. Professor Kendrick's own deep interest in the history of cities and the built environment date back to her childhood, and she encouraged students to find something in the city that they felt passionate about. During my own undergraduate career two decades ago, I took a similar class at UCLA and the research in the course helped me come into my own as a writer and scholar. I learned about civic engagement from this experience and have remained engaged ever since.

Our students adhered to this spirit and chose a kaleidoscope of local places and issues in their quest to tell their own L.A. Stories. Professor Kendrick says, "Through research that included oral history and site analysis, students were to analyze 'how these urban spaces contain narratives of the city that have either been unheard or are out of plain view.' In this way, students explored how spaces became places: how the literal boundaries and physical forms of, for example, a nightclub, an ethnic enclave, or a church, contained stories of transformation, rupture or continuity."

It was very satisfying to observe the various places they selected and how the research came together. We will feature a few short excerpts from their work here.

Polina Zeynalian is a graduating senior in Fashion Design. Drawing on her experience with L.A.'s garment manufacturers, her essay critiqued the excesses and injustice of the global fashion industry. Zeynalian interviewed locally-based manufacturers, including a textile print and dye studio in Boyle Heights, a denim wash house near Compton, and a high-quality leather manufacturer in Vernon, and demonstrated that their contributions to Los Angeles have wide-reaching implications for quality of product, for labor and for the environment.

Christian Hidalgo is an Architecture major from Whittier. His research centered on three nature sites around Whittier: Whittier Narrows, Murphy Ranch, and Turnbull Canyon. His paper began by saying how for most of his life he took Whittier for granted, but as he got older, when he discovered the hiking trails of Turnbull Canyon and the sprawling wetlands at Whittier Narrows, he realized that his hometown had the perfect mix of the great outdoors and city life. His essay highlighted each of these sites and demonstrated his own evolution and personal development. In many ways, he painted a vivid picture of someone coming to a new understanding to where they are from. This excerpt from his paper reveals more:

Maria Deroyan is a Graphic Design major who loves to write about and research the Los Angeles art scene. Her project examined the history of art museums in the greater Los Angeles area, and how institutions such as LACMA, Norton Simon, and the Getty Center "emerge as iconic and engaged agents that reflect the history and culture of the city." She looked at how the physical space of each museum embodied the tensions within L.A.'s art community. Deroyan just graduated, and intends to carry this work on as both a freelance writer and in her future graduate studies.

Alan Mera is another Architecture major, and his project studied the range of Los Angeles houses. In addition to covering well known Los Angeles housing types like the California Ranch House, Streamline Moderne, and Craftsmen Bungalow, Mera discussed the often overlooked "Storybook Houses," that were popular around Southern California in the 1920s and 30s. Some have called these whimsical homes, "a blurring of art and architecture," or "the architecture of fantasy." Mera's well researched project revealed his own love of California homes and his passion for architecture and design. He plans to design homes once he graduates and his project was a perfect fusion of his personal and professional interests.

Interdisciplinary Studies student Lori Boghigian analyzed the role that community centers play in the heavily Armenian American populated neighborhoods of Montebello, East Hollywood, and Glendale. Her project explored how these centers provide a physical space where the language, literature, music and dance of L.A.'s Armenian cultures can be practiced and preserved. Her study demonstrated that scholarship on the Armenian influence in Los Angeles is lacking, and that efforts of her generation to tell their own stories will be crucial. Boghigian is also a graduating senior and she also intends to carry on her research.

Graduating senior Aram Hacobian was greatly inspired by the London's Museum of History after he visited the city in 2014. His project noted that Los Angeles has a number of great museums, like the Museum of National History, the Getty, LACMA, MOCA, Japanese-American National Museum, African-American History Museum, but that there is not one standalone museum dedicated entirely to the History of Los Angeles. His essay proposed a Museum of Los Angeles History to be built on the grounds of Exposition Park where the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena now stands. Hacobian's project displayed his Los Angeles patriotism with flying colors. Undoubtedly he is not the first to consider this idea, and it's only a matter of time before it happens nonetheless, his vision and enthusiasm is a hopeful sign.

There were a number of other great projects. Graduating senior Victoria Harris compared and contrasted the onsite residential programs and single room occupancies (SRO) in Skid Row. Harris is a Los Angeles native that split her childhood years between Boyle Heights and Silver Lake. She became interested in helping people on Skid Row after interning a few years ago at an emergency shelter. Her research also gave a brief history of Skid Row and noted that the district began at the end of the 19th century because it was the last train stop in the entire country. Architecture major Julian Hernandez examined the eateries of Boyle Heights, Hollywood, and Koreatown. Marine Guyujyan analyzed three different libraries across the city -- she compared and contrasted Downtown Central Library, the Vermont Square Library, and the branch in Palms/Rancho Park.

Guyujyan also shared with me an extended essay she wrote about the greening of Los Angeles. Her 2,000 word essay offered a survey of the efforts across the city to create more parks. The hopeful, yet thoughtful tone in her writing epitomizes the emerging spirit of the city's next generation. Her vision corroborates with many others when she writes:


History

Woodbury Corporation is a Utah-based real estate development and management company that has been owned and operated by four generations of the Woodbury family. It was founded in 1919 by F. Orin Woodbury, whose goal was to build a company by developing and managing a portfolio of well-located real estate equities. Now, almost 100 years later, the Woodbury Corporation is run by the third generation of Woodbury family members, with several fourth generation family members in leadership positions. They follow the same principles of hard work, honesty and integrity as their grand-father, with a commitment to improving communities they do business in. Woodbury Corporation is one of the oldest and most respected full-service real estate development and management companies in the Intermountain West.

Woodbury Corporation developed University Mall in the early 1970s, and has owned and managed it ever since. For over 40 years it has been Orem’s landmark shopping center. Now, as University Place, the project offers housing, offices space, and entertainment, along with shopping, dining, and a two-acre outdoor green space called The Orchard, which will be packed with events all year.

The founders of Woodbury came from Stratford, Fairfield County, in the early 1670s. Ancient Woodbury consisted of the present towns of Woodbury, Southbury, Roxbury, Bethlehem, most of Washington and parts of Middlebury and Oxford.

Two groups of settlers came from Stratford. The first group, religious dissidents unhappy with the church in Stratford, was led by Woodbury's first minister, the Reverend Zachariah Walker. The second group, led by Deacon Samuel Sherman, had been given approval by the general court to purchase land from local Native Americans in order to establish a new settlement. The two groups, consisting of fifteen families (about fifty people), arrived in ancient Woodbury, known as "Pomperaug Plantation", early in 1673.

In 1673, these original settlers drew up an agreement called the "Fundamental Articles", which proclaimed that as many settlers as could be accommodated would be welcomed to the new settlement. The Fundamental Articles stated that expenses of establishing the settlement would be shared by its inhabitants, and that no one was to be given more than twenty-five or less than ten acres of land. Other sections of the articles provided for common land and for land saved to be divided up for future inhabitants of the settlement. [6]

Signers of the Fundamental Articles:

  • Samuel Sherman, Sr.
  • Joshua Curtiss
  • Titus Hinman
  • Israel Curtiss
  • Samuel L. Jackson
  • David Jenkins
  • John Wheeler
  • John Judson
  • Roger Terill
  • Barry Bonds
  • Moses Johnson
  • John Wyatt
  • Samuel Munn
  • John Sherman
  • Samuel Stiles
  • John Minor
  • Moses Malone
  • Eleazur Knowles
  • Thomas Fairchild
  • Roger Wheeler

The settlement was named Woodbury, which means "dwelling place in the woods", and was first recognized as a town in 1674. Deacon and captain John Minor was the first leader of the community during Woodbury's early years. Minor was the first town clerk and, along with Lieutenant Joseph Judson, served as the first deputy to the Connecticut General Court from the town of Woodbury. On October 9, 1751, the town of Woodbury was transferred from Fairfield County at the formation of Litchfield County.

On March 25, 1783, a meeting of ten Episcopal clergy in Woodbury elected Samuel Seabury the first American Episcopal bishop, the second presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church in the United States, and the first bishop of Connecticut.

The Woodbury Songbook Edit

The German composer Hanns Eisler, who had taken asylum in the United States after fleeing from the Nazi rule in Germany, spent three and a half months (from June 15 to September 30, 1941) in Woodbury as the guest of another German refugee, Dr. Joachim Schumacher, and his wife Sylvia. Joachim Schumacher taught classes in art history, musicology, philosophy, and other subjects at the Westover School in Middlebury. Sylvia Schumacher taught piano at Westover School and privately in her home. [7] Joachim Schumacher enticed Eisler to compose 20 songs on 16 US children's verses or nursery rhymes and four texts in the German language by Goethe, Eduard Mörike and Ignazio Silone. The songs were composed for female voices and suitable for a school chorus. [8] This was published as The Woodbury Songbook, or, in German, Das Woodbury Liederbüchlein with the lyrics in English and German, unfortunately with a wrong spelling of Woodbury (with two "r"s). The German translations are by Wieland Herzfelde. [9]

Politics Edit

Woodbury is one of the most reliably Republican towns in the United States. Since its founding in 1854, every Republican presidential candidate has carried Woodbury, even in nationwide Democratic landslides such as 1912, 1936, and 1964 in which Democratic candidates won Connecticut. Only four times, in 1884, the aforementioned 1912, 1992, and 1996 has the GOP candidate for president not received an absolute majority of the vote.
