Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

In addition to building a new house each year, Construction Technology students branched out during this decade, erecting the Lemon Park Recreation Building and the Chapman Park Recreation Building, refurbishing the Fullerton Museum Center, and replacing the roof on the 1900 Eastlake-styled Dr. George Clark House (Heritage House), located on the grounds of the Arboretum on the CSU Fullerton campus. These building projects gave students hands-on experience with heavy timber and glue laminated beam placement, wood framing, and roof problems. In this 1974 photo, Bob McCormick (left), Fullerton College construction technology instructor, holds a plaque given by the City of La Habra to Fullerton College students for all the carpentry work done in the construction of the La Habra Girl Scout Pavilion, shown in the rear. Looking on are Robert W. Petri, building construction program instructor, and Joseph W. James, Chairman of the Division of Technical Education. The new Girl Scout Pavilion was to be used for camping out and for plays and shows put on by the Scouts.
