Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

In 1953, FJC broke with the High School and began sponsoring its own separate biennial Open House, known as the FJCee-orama, limiting visiting hours to the evening. Residents had passed a tax increase on May 19, 1950, but a $500,000 bond issue was up before the voters on May 15, 1953, and the campus was again eager to put its best foot forward to obtain needed votes. In addition to the usual exhibits, the Open House featured a fashion show, square and modern dancing, and vocal performances. FJC celebrated its fortieth anniversary in 1953, and the campus used that opportunity to showcase its history in many of the displays.
