North of the University of La Verne, high in the San Gabriel Mountains lies a large carved “L” built to be the highest university initial in the United States. The letter “L” was constructed by the student body in 1919. Engineers Isaac Funderburgh, Davis Bomberger, George HollenBerg and Carl Rexrod used dormitory sheets to lay out the letter and then returned to the campus to view the results. Students were once allowed to clear the brush around the “L” but are now barred from doing so. Recent snow fall allowed residents to view the “L” outline. / photo by Rafael Anguiano
