Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

This is a 1933 photograph of tight end C. Robert McCormick. McCormick was an all around good student, who was also a member of the Glee Club, the track team, and the Nightwalkers dramatic club. He played football with Richard M. Nixon while both attended Fullerton Union High School in 1926, and briefly dated Pat Ryan (later Pat Nixon) while both were members of the Nightwalkers Club. After graduating from FJC in 1934, McCormick completed his higher education at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), taught in a junior high school, then returned to FJC in 1946 as a faculty member teaching construction technology until his death of a sudden heart attack in February 1975. McCormick was instrumental in establishing in 1946 a building trades program that built homes on campus that were sold to the highest bidder.
