Pictures From the Heilbron Era
The following is an excerpt from the obituary for Louis H. Heilbron that our archivist, Judson Grenier, wrote for the March 2007 issue of the CSU-ERFA Reporter.
... Louis H. Heilbron, first chairman of the board of trustees of the California State Colleges and strong advocate of creation of a faculty Academic Senate, died on December 20 at age 99. Heilbron’s board shepherded the CSC into existence and established precedents that govern the system today. Many long-time observers of the CSU consider Heilbron to have been perhaps the most intelligent and effective chairman in its 46-year history.
Heilbron was head of the state Board of Education at the time of adoption of the Master Plan for Higher Education in 1960. He was active in drafting that plan, and then accepted Governor Pat Brown’s appointment to lead the new CSC Board of Trustees, which began work in August of 1960, and assumed formal control July 1, 1961. ...
Judson obtained some pictures from the Heilbron era from the CSU Archives, but space limitations prevented their inclusion in the Reporter. We include them here as a complement to the Reporter article on Heilbron. If you can add information about any of these pictures, please send us an email message. We also want to thank Thomas Philo, Archivist and Cataloger at the CSU Dominguez Hills Library, for providing digital versions of the images.
