Charter Gala is fast approaching. The 2012 event in celebration of the University of California's 144th anniversary is scheduled for the evening of March 24th at the historic Palace Hotel in San Francisco. Registration opens on February 2nd.
The photograph above was taken at the 1946 Charter Banquet, also held at the Palace. That night the poet Robert Frost was awarded an honorary degree by the University and then-Governor and future Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Earl Warren '12 was honored as Alumnus of the Year.
