Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

In 1960, Hugh Hefner started a chain of nightclubs, Playboy Clubs, owned and operated by Playboy Enterprises. The clubs featured attractive Playboy Bunnies, dressed in skimpy bunny costumes, serving food and drinks. In tribute to the Playboy lifestyle, FJC Veterans Club members sponsored an annual Playboy Dance where an FJC student was selected as a Playmate of the Year. In this February 1960 photo, President Ted Browne presents a stuffed bunny to FJC Playmate winner Linda Mills. Later Playmates of the Year candidates were sponsored by clubs on campus.
