Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

While clubs and organizations on campus had always sponsored female candidates for Homecoming Queen, the competition grew very competitive in the 1960s, with the Veterans Club candidates winning most elections. Fraternities, sororities, and clubs would create elaborate booths to showcase their candidates. In 1963, the Olympia Men’s Club paraded around campus with a Trojan horse and ocelot to drum up votes for their queen and princess candidates. The Olympians supported Jackie Nolton for queen, and the wooden horse was constructed in the Nolton family backyard, then transported to FJC in a large truck.
