The Cultural Development of Los Angeles





Franklin D. Murphy, who was chancellor of UCLA and later chief executive of the Times Mirror media empire, used his role as friend and advisor to many of the people behind America's greatest fortunes to turn Los Angeles into a vibrant world class city. Larry talks with Margaret Leslie Davis about her new book, The Culture Broker: Franklin D. Murphy and the Transformation of Los Angeles (UC Press), which chronicles Murphy's behind the scenes contribution to Los Angeles' cultural development.
