The Leadership of Cal State, Northridge meets with the TEB foundation at the City Club of LA to create the Tom & Ethel Bradley Center at CSU, Northridge.

California State University, Northridge has joined forces with the Tom and Ethel Bradley Foundation to develop a unique resource for the study of the ethnic communities of Los Angeles and the sharing of their stories. The Tom & Ethel Bradley Center at CSUN will build on the efforts of the university’s Institute for Arts & Media to preserve the visual history of Southern California, with an emphasis on ethnic minority communities. The Bradley Center will continue the collection and archiving already done at CSUN and will encourage research into and exploration of the collections.
