After the tragic shooting of his son, the Irish American oil tycoon Edward L. Doheny donated $1.1 million in 1932 to USC to build the Doheny Library. It was designed by architect Ralph Adams Cram. The gardens were designed by A.E. Hanson (1893-1986).
The Doheny Library was used as a filming location for Mike Nichols' 1967 film The Graduate, for the sequence in which Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman) waits by the fountain for Elaine Robinson (Katharine Ross), who exits the library's main door.
