San Fernando Valley State College is now California State University, Northridge.
Photograph caption dated March 18, 1961 reads "The judges at Valley State College in Northridge originally intended to pick one girl as the 1961 Model of the Year as their assignment in the institution's celebration of Women's Week. But they couldn't make up their minds and so they selected as co-winners of the title Mary Hope Raglin, left, and Tammy Taber, right. In the center is last year's single winner, Joan Barber."
