Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

The heart of the Journalism Department was the Torch office, shown here in 1949. The Torch students produced the weekly newspaper along with an annual yearbook. The atmosphere was always informal, with the emphasis on clear, concise accounts of campus events. While Torch staff concentrated on campus events, reporters did go off campus in the mid-1950s to interview famous celebrities, such as Duke Ellington, Kirk Douglas, and Tennessee Ernie Ford.
