During the 1940s, Cleveland Chiropractic College of Kansas City sought the acquisition of Ratledge Chiropractic
in Los Angeles. Ratledge College had been operating since 1908 and was re-chartered as Cleveland Chiropractic
College of Los Angeles in 1950. The campus was located at 3511 West Olympic in Los Angeles until 1976, when the
current site at 590 North Vermont Avenue was acquired.

Southern California College of Chiropractic ceased operations during the 1990s.

Los Angeles College of Chiropractic (LACC - future Southern California University of Health Sciences) was founded in
1911 by Dr. Charles Cale and his wife, Linnie. The first classes were held in the Cales' home, including classes in anatomy,
chiropractic principles and technique. The entire chiropractic course lasted nine months.

During the late 1940s, the greatly expanded LACC, along with several other colleges, were acquired by the nonprofit
corporation, California Chiropractic Educational Foundation.  The Foundation created a new chiropractic college and
retained the name Los Angeles College of Chiropractic.  By 1950, the program of study had expanded from 32 months
to four years and the college moved to Glendale, consolidating its basic subjects and chiropractic sciences into a single
comprehensive curriculum taught at one facility.

In 1981, LACC acquired a new campus in Whittier.  During this same decade, the college became the first and only
chiropractic program to become accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. It was also one of the
first chiropractic colleges to win federal research grants.

By the end of the twentieth century,  Southern California University of Health Sciences was formed to include both
LACC and the newly acquired College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
