MILES D. McCARTHY SETH A. FESSENDEN Science Faculty Chairman MARY S. REED BARBARA A. HARTSIG Education Education LESTER BEALS LAWRENCE B. deGRAAF Education Social Science The administration and faculty were originally housed in an old science build- ing on the campus of Fullerton Union High School. Classes began in the fall of 1959, on the new Sunny Hills High School campus. The first faculty was composed of Dr. Lester Beak of the education department, Lawrence B. deGraaf of the social science department, Dr. Seth A. Fessenden, the faculty chairman, Dr. Barbara A. Hartsig, of the education department, Dr. Miles D. McCarthy, science, and Mrs. Mary S. Reed, education. Many amusing incidents occurred dur- ing that first year. Dr. Fessenden had the first casualty of the semester when a student fainted in class. Mr. deGraaf ' s first contact with Orange County State College was when approaching the col- lege he was confronted by sawhorses and lumber. He had a daily visitor who wasn ' t a student, but a squeaking mouse! Dr. Beals remembers the happy coffee times and in contrastthe difficulty of getting into the building during the rainy season be- cause of the resulting mud. Muddy shoes were quite common! Mr. Ryan, who came in January, ran the bookstore which was in a former ' darkroom ' . The bookstore started out with a capital of $10.00. In the spring of 1960, during March, the staff moved to the Mahr House, a large Spanish style home at 800 North Cypress. All six faculty had desks and files in one room and the staff consisted of ap- proximately 27 people. The President ' s office was upstairs. Mr. Lyons, the Bus- iness Manager,was in the breakfast room. The heating problem was solved by the burning of trash in the fireplace, and the secretaries along with their many other duties took turns making the coffee and fighting off mosquitoes. They also had a maternity ward for pigeons on the upper story. Vegetables were found in the back yard along with the coke machine, and in the front was a most appreciated rose garden. After a very warm and dry summer, the staff, amidst clouds of dust, moved during the last weeks of August 1960, into new administrative buildings. These would serve as a " temporary " home. 4

That the heart of a good college is a quality faculty is a fact stressed many times by President William B. Langsdorf, who,along with other members of the college administration, has searched throughout the country for qualified professors and instructors for this college. The col- lege opened its first year with a faculty of six and in September, 1960, there were 48. Next fall this is expected to reach approximately 77. The faculty represents extensive teaching experience in collegesand univer- sities throughout the country. In addition to hours devoted to teaching and advising students, fac- ulty members have contributed countless hours to Faculty Council busi- ness includi ng work on a Constitution and to work on long-range plans necessary for a college building for the future. Responsible for much of the coordinating of the instructional program are the six division chair men. MILES D. McCARTHY SETH A. FESSENDEN GILES T.
