This year as we occupy our first permanent
buildings, observe the construction of Phase
Two buildings and plan Phase Three building,
the future of Los Angeles Valley College looks
It is interesting to recall that the college
very unceremoniously opened the doors of its
ten temporary bungalows located on an acre
of ground across the street from Van Nuys
High School to some 437 students in Septem-
ber of l949.
The growth of the college has been fabu-
lous during the past lO years. Today a total
of 10,000 are in attendance. Of this number
4000 are in day classes and 6000 are on cam-
pus at night.
However, the history of Valley extends. be-
yond numbers enrolled. lt is a history of suc-
cesses, accomplishments, honors and the estab-
lishment of traditions. Faculty and students
through years of dedicated, ceaseless effort
and cr genuine concern about the welfare of
the college have firmly established a reputa-
tion which must be maintained in the future.
As we continue to grow and acquire needed
facilities, we hope that Valley will continue
to be q friendly, democratic, challenging,
imaginative institution dedicated to serving
the individual needs of students.

DR. STEWART MARSH
Dean of Instruction
Deans Oversee Instruction, Students
As dean of instruction, Dr. Stewart Marsh holds the
key to Valley's outstanding academic standing. The
new classes that are continually being added to Val-
ley's expanding curriculum are carefully considered
and approved by Dr. Marsh. When the school opened
in l949, the catalogue listed 24 complete courses of
study with a little more than 60 classes. By September,
1954, half-way through the decade, Valley boasted 68
courses of study, including vocational two-year courses
and university-transfer courses. Under Dr. Marsh's
guidance, Valley has expanded to 73 curricula with
classes running up well into the hundreds this year.
In student activities, one favorite leader has kept pace
with the field since Valley first opened its doors. At that
time Mrs. Nena Royer was dean of student activities
over only 437 pioneering students. Now, with l0,000,
Dean Royer keeps just as actively in touch with the
activities of the campus. Homecoming, Fiesta, Monarch
Day, Club Day and the many other campus events that
have been added since 1949 fall into the understanding
hands of Dean Royer. Students now are iust as aware
of her guiding hand and her warm, quick smile as they
