Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

On October 2, 1946, over 6,000 people lined Spadra (now Harbor) Boulevard to celebrate Fall Festival and the end of World War II. Veterans from the Spanish American War, World War I, and World War II were asked to march in the parade. At the close of the Second World War, Fullerton’s 11,328 residents were weary of fighting, shortages, and rationing, but optimistic about the future. The city’s population would soon explode, rising to 58,000 by 1960. (Courtesy of the Fullerton Public Library.)
