Description
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 May 16, 1958 reads, "Pretty Sharon Cannon invites Undersheriff Pete Pitchess to Pierce Junior College rodeo tomorrow and Sunday with Western style invitation. Bud Mansker, team captain helps rodeo queen 'rope' him in. Two-day event will be staged at college and starts at 2 p.m. both days."
