1962 PIERCE COLLEGE XXX FRATERNITY

2010  THE YEAR OF VALLEY ADVENTURES

 Danton Burroughs was much loved by his Chi Chi Chi fraternity bothers at Pierce College. Here he is seen in 1962 (far right) at his induction into the fraternity under the nickname of Organ Grinder. Photo in the Archives of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley. Refer to photograph 1927 (click on image to enlarge) Dan was the grandson of the great American author Edgar Rice Burroughs who named Tarzana.
Themed parties and "exchanges" with sororities were very important parts of fraternity life in the 1960s. Here a Chi Chi Chi fraternity boy welcomes two guests to his organization's annual luau party.
Refer to photograph 1928.
