PIERCE COLLEGE STUDENTS BRING IN 1971 - 2010 THANKS TO THE FOUNDATION FOR PIERCE COLLEGE

2010  THE YEAR OF VALLEY ADVENTURES

Looking for a way to say special thanks to the Foundation for Pierce College for its help in 2010, I thought it would fun to share some of the incoming Archival photographs of the Chi Chi Chi Fraternity on the Pierce campus in 1970-1971.
At our early stage in the development of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley, encouragement and help from groups such as the Foundation for Pierce College is immeasurable. Dennis Washburn, the Foundation's executive director, seems always on hand to give The Museum sound advice and useful direction. Dennis knows intuitively, that as The Museum grows, so does our Valley-wide community's support for Pierce College.  Thousands of women and men in the San Fernando Valley owe their careers to the beloved "Farm" as many of its alumni still call the school in reverence. The Museum of the San Fernando Valley is also grateful.

Are you sure these photos are 1970? I went to Pierce from 1969-71and most students had long hair, wore fringe and were protesting the war. I realize frats & sororities were not necessarily engaged in that sort of thing but most of the kids I knew had long hair parted in the middle (girls) and the guys looked like hippies, surfers or stoners. These photos, with the exception of the first one w/ the girl in the mini, look mid 60s. Check the teased hair on the blonde.
