Photograph was edited for publication purposes 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 30, 1965 reads, "Cows dot Pierce hillsides - Cows grazing on Pierce College hillsides in Woodland Hills give a wary look to photographer Gordon Dean when he snuck up on them to catch this pastoral scene. Actually the cows are a reminder of Pierce College's upcoming California Young Farmers convention slated at Riverside Mission Inn beginning Thursday. A five-man delegation from the college will attend the district meet."; See image #00135841 for additional photo in this series.
