University of California showing big C on Hill Side
Divided Back Vintage Postcard in Excellent, Unused Condition. This post card was published by The O. Newman Company of Los Angeles and San Francisco and is numbered W. 11.
The first hillside letter built was a C in March of 1905. It was constructed out of concrete and placed on Charter Hill overlooking the UC Berkeley. The UC Berkeley classes of 1907 and 1908 proposed this project as a means of ending the rivalry and the unruly physical encounters that had become a part of their annual rush each spring. The UC Berkeley yearbook would later record that the two classes would go down in the history of the University as those who sacrificed their class spirit for love of their alma mater.
