4. The University of California Irvine named the Claire Trevor School of the Arts in her honor:

About Claire Trevor | Claire Trevor School of the Arts | UC Irvine

"Her relationship with UC Irvine came about because she was a passionate advocate of the Arts and Arts education. During the later years of her life – she retired from professional acting in 1987 – Ms. Trevor became involved with the School of the Arts and its students, who came to cherish her attendance at their  performances and value the wisdom and professional advice she shared so generously with them. 

Ms. Trevor was a frequent visitor to the School, sitting in on rehearsals and interacting with student actors and faculty. She liked getting to know the drama students and seeing their work, according to those who knew her at that time. She often spoke of the important role the Arts had played in her life, and she believed that using one’s imagination to its fullest is necessary in order to live a happy life. She was thrilled to be able to help the School’s students achieve their goals and assist them, in some small way, according to her friends."
