Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

In October 1974, the College Hour, which had been very popular in earlier decades, was reinstituted, with performers entertaining for free in the Student Center each Thursday from 11:00 to 12:00 p.m. This is a photo of the Cooper Dodge Band, a country and western group from Vermont, performing on October 15, 1978. Other notable singers and groups that performed on campus in the 1970s included Mary Clayton, Jackson Browne, Ambrosia, Santana, Linda Ronstadt, and Johnny Rivers, who gave a free concert on the patio in support of George McGovern. Jackson Browne had graduated from Sunny Hills High School in Fullerton in 1966. Many of the larger concerts were held in the Men’s Gymnasium. Rock concerts were periodically banned because of unruly crowds and damage left from cigarette/marijuana smoking and liquor bottles. At some concerts, FC students were outnumbered by nonstudents or high school students.
