In October 1965, Superintendent Lake suddenly announced that William E. Blurock and Associates of Corona del Mar had been appointed architects of FJC, replacing Taylor and Conner, whose final project was the Music and Theatre Arts facilities. Blurock had been selected earlier as the architect for the new Cypress College and was also hired by the Board of Trustees to design additions to the FJC Library and Science Buildings. Blurock and his associates would become one of Orange County’s longest surviving and one of its largest home-grown architectural businesses. In this 1966 shot, William Blurock (seated, left) peruses the Cypress College plans while (left to right, standing) are Dr. Carl B. Franzen, educational consultant, Dr. Base Hedrick, Faculty Club President, and Dr. Ernest G. Lake, District Superintendent. Seated on the right is William W. Caudill, who also worked on the initial master plan for Cypress College.
