Description
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 article dated January 23, 1959 partially reads, "Final rounds in Pierce College's Annual Intercollegiate Rodeo will be held at 8 p.m. today with participants from both junior and four-year colleges of California and nearby states battling for awards. Officials said about 1,700 persons watched preliminary rounds Friday at the Woodland Hills campus."
