On the evening of Monday, November 13, 1922, on the campus of USC, eight foil fencers gathered before a “good sized, and very enthusiastic crowd” to compete in the first tournament of the first season of the newly-formed Southern California Division of the Amateur Fencers’ League of America (now USA Fencing). First place went to Reginald Leslie ‘Snowy’ Baker, a multi-talented athlete who had come to Hollywood from Australia in 1920 to make movies. The Los Angeles Times reported the event like this:

On Sunday, November 13, 2022, the Southern California Division will be celebrating its 100th birthday with a tournament on the campus of Pasadena City College. Events include Y-14 (born 2008-2001), Senior (born 2009 or earlier) and Parafencing.
