During the 1980s and 1990s, many faculty members who had been hired after World War II began to retire, taking with them years of valuable experience. At the same time, California colleges and universities switched to replacing full-time, tenure-track faculty with many part-time instructors, and Fullerton College followed suit. In 1985, one of those retirees was Communications instructor Lewis S. Barrett, hired in 1961. Barrett’s innovations included such pioneering courses as Survey of Mass Media (Communications 110) and Broadcast Journalism (Communications 135). Before becoming an instructor at Fullerton College, Barrett had worked as a night reporter and assistant photographer for the San Bernardino Sun-Telegram. Barrett is posing here with some of his journalism students.
