Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

One of the most popular courses on campus after World War II was Dr. C. H. McClure’s Marriage and the Family (Family Relations 15). The course covered fourteen weeks on the psychology of marriage, two weeks on its biology, and two weeks on the economics of marriage. The class was particularly popular with the wives of veterans. The campus tried to attract veterans’ wives, encouraging them to take day and evening courses in art, ceramics, music, photography, home economics, child care, psychology, philosophy, sociology, creative writing, the contemporary novel, typing, and stenography. Dr. McClure, shown here with an infant of one of his students, was a popular instructor, and he would often hold personal conferences and sessions with veterans and their families.
