Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

Initially, college students, especially those enrolled in agriculture clubs, were called upon to maintain the landscaping for both the college and high school. When the Depression started, students needing money for college were often hired with federal relief funds to maintain the campus grounds. Taken in the mid-1930s, this photograph shows a college student mowing the lawn in front of Fullerton Union High School.
