Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

One of the highlights of the December 10, 1949 student assembly was a performance by baritone John Raitt (1917-2005), who is shown relaxing at a party given in his honor. A star athlete and budding singer while a student at Fullerton Union High School, Raitt had achieved Broadway stardom in original productions of Oklahoma!, Carousel, and The Pajama Game. Raitt returned on June 1, 1951 for a sold-out performance at Plummer Auditorium. Raitt was the father of blues singer Bonnie Raitt.
