Administrative History

The University of California, San Diego Department of Music, internationally recognized as a premiere center for education and innovation in new music, was established in 1965. The first chair of the department was composer Will Ogdon, succeeded by John Silber in 1971. The first faculty appointed to the department included Robert Erickson, Thomas Nee, and Pauline Oliveros. The department was originally housed in the Camp Matthews buildings on the Muir College campus, until the Mandeville Center for the Performing Arts opened in 1975.
