History of the institution

In 1895, Dr. Phineas F. Bresee, a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and Dr. J. P. Widney, a Methodist layman and former President of the University of Southern California, founded the Church of the Nazarene in Los Angeles, California. Their primary purpose was to bring the good news of the gospel to the poor and underprivileged. 1895 (MDCCCXCV) was a common year starting on Tuesday (see link for calendar) of the Gregorian calendar (or a common year starting on Thursday of the 12-day-slower Julian calendar). ...

In 1910, the college purchased the Hugus Ranch property in Pasadena, California, and moved the campus to the Pasadena site naming it Nazarene University. The scope of the curriculum was enlarged to include a typical program in the liberal arts. A theological dispute in 1917 forced half the student body to depart nearly bankrupted the university, but the board of trustees managed to save it and they renamed the school Pasadena University. The school grew, receiving accreditation from Northwest Association of Secondary and Higher Schools in 1943, and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges in 1949. To revert to old trends begun by Bresee, the school was once again renamed, this time to Pasadena College.-1... Pasadena is a city located in Los Angeles County, California, United States. ...

History of Point Loma site

The Theosophical Society began its settlement on the barren and windswept slopes of Point Loma in 1896. Led by Katherine Tingley, the group came to Point Loma to establish a community that would model the philosophical and humanitarian goals of Theosophy. The "White City" envisioned by Tingley was to be located on the extreme western edge of the North American continent but oriented toward India, the spiritual center of Theosophical beliefs. The blend of new world confidence, Victorian morality, a love of antiquity, and Indian spirituality created a unique community that found its expression in architecture that is still visible on the campus of Point Loma Nazarene University. Seal of the Theosophical Society Theosophy is a body of belief which holds that all religions are attempts by man to ascertain the Divine, and as such each religion has a portion of the truth. ... 1896 (MDCCCXCVI) was a leap year starting on Wednesday (see link for calendar). ... Katherine Augusta Westcott Tingley (1847, Newbury, Massachusetts - 1929) was a social worker and prominent Theosophist. ...


Historic Buildings

By 1900, the campus was dominated by the imposing Academy Building and the adjoining Temple of Peace. Both buildings were constructed in the Theosophical vernacular that included the flattened arch motif and whimsical references to antiquity. The buildings were topped by amethyst domes, which were lighted at night and could be seen offshore. The entrance to the Academy Building was dominated by two massive carved doors that symbolized the Theosophical Principles of spiritual enlightenment and human potential. These doors are currently located in the archives of the San Diego Historical Society. The sculptor, Reginald Machell, was educated in England, but moved to Lomaland with the community in 1896. The interior furnishings he carved for the Academy Building were influenced by the Symbolist style popular in Europe at that time. Machell also supervised the woodworking school at Point Loma. Agricultural experimentation was essential to the Lomaland community's desire to be self-sufficient in all respects. Katherine Tingley's goal was to serve fresh fruits and vegetables at Lomaland every day of the year. Early agricultural products brought to California by the Theosophists included the avocado. 1900 (MCM) was an exceptional common year starting on Monday. ...

Lomaland had public buildings for the entire community and several private homes. The home of Albert Spalding, the sporting goods tycoon, was built in 1901. The building combines late-Victorian wooden architecture with historical motifs such as the modified Corinthian column (now shaped like a papyrus leaf) and flattened arches. The amethyst dome was restored by a team of scholars led by Dr. Dwayne Little of the department of History and Political Science in 1983.

The educational arm of Lomaland was the Raja Yoga Academy, also established in 1901. "Raja Yoga" meant divine union, and the educational goals of the school involved not only intellectual formation but also moral and spiritual development. The Raja Yoga Academy was a boarding school; students lived together in group homes that were know as "Lotus Houses."


Cabrillo Hall, which served as the International Center Headquarters, the Brotherhood Headquarters, and "Wachere Crest" building, was completed in 1909. It served as office for the Theosophical Society and as a residence for Katherine Tingley after 1909. It was originally located on the west side of Pepper Tree lane. Cabrillo Hall is currently the home of the Communication Studies department. 1909 (MCMIX) was a common year starting on Friday (see link for calendar). ...


This multi-purpose structure was originally located just southwest of the Academy Building. It served a variety of functions that included telephone and mail services; in 1908 it was used as a display center for the Woman's Exchange and Mart. The unusual truss design in the interior of the building emphasized the square and the circle, which were symbolic of heaven and earth.


After the Theosophical Society

Lomaland dissolved in the aftermath of World War I and was taken over by Fort Rosecrans at somepoint thereafter. It served as an observation point and several barracks were installed on the site, which constitute some of the campus dormitories today.
