The Hancock Memorial Museum is a Historical Cultural Monument 

Housed in the Hancock Foundation Building on the University Park Campus of USC.


The Museum is a slice of the good life from turn-of-the-century Los Angeles, complete with Carrara marble staircase, a Music Salon with Tiffany chandelier and Dining Room furniture from many countries in Europe. It is comprised of four rooms moved intact from the original Hancock Family Mansion on Wilshire Blvd.

Captain G. Allan Hancock donated the rooms to USC in 1939 to honor the memory of his mother Ida Haraszthy Hancock, an early California pioneer.

The Hancock name is legendary: on the USC Campus, the oil fields of Rancho La Brea, Hancock Park, and the Miracle Mile areas of Los Angeles.

Captain G. Allan Hancock led Scientific Expeditions along the Pacific coasts of North and South America prior to and during the year 1931, when he became known to USC President Rufus Von KleinSmid. The Captain was awarded an Honorary Degree from USC in 1937 and subsequently joined the University Board of Trustees.  Allan Hancock’s generous legacy, to both arts and sciences, is important to USC and all of Los Angeles.
