TBT (Throwback Thursday): San Bernardino welcomes the university

 

Our King-Sized Valentine. California State College at San Bernardino. Tomorrow's Citizens. You'll appreciate it more in a few years.

The university’s site was selected on February 8, 1963. Six days later, on St. Valentine’s Day, the San Bernardino County Sun Telegram ran this “valentine” to CSCSB. The entire city was celebrating! San Bernardino Mayor Mauldin told reporters, “I think that this is the finest thing that has ever happened to San Bernardino.”
