The Clarence W. Pierce School of Agriculture is a two-year community college in Woodland Hills, California. It opened in September 1947, with 70 students and 18 faculty members and is part of the Los Angeles Community College District. The school's initial focus was crop cultivation and animal husbandry, and still retains a large swatch of open fields for hands-on working farm training. In 1956 the school was renamed Los Angeles Pierce College.
Photograph caption dated January 18, 1961 reads "Agriculture students at Pierce help unload piping needed to provide irrigation for the college's grazing pastures. Pierce has 200 cattle and 100 sheep for the farm program."; See images #00119960 through #00119964 for all photos in this series.
