TBT (Throwback Thursday) – the Social Lites give the first private scholarship to CSUSB

The Social Lites of San Bernardino made the first private donation to CSUSB’s scholarship funds!

You can find a photo of this event, and others in the Cal State University Photo naming project – Zenfolio at http://csusb.zenfolio.com/p763499979/h34653b7d

You will notice that we have two competing captions for the photograph:

(IN SEARCH OF COMMUNITY…W. McAfee)–Two representatives of the Social Lites present President John Pfau with $500 to be added to the continuing scholarship fund set up in 1965.

From T’Tauri
Two representatives of the Social Lites present President Pfau with $550 to be added to the continuing scholarship fund set up in 1965.

While some of the details differ, we can say with confidence that this is a photo of President Pfau being presented with the first privately raised donation for a Cal State San Bernardino Scholarship, and that the organization that made the donation was the Social Lites.

For many of the photographs in the archives, we have absolutely no information. We are putting a few dozen photographs at a time up on Zenfolio (http://csusb.zenfolio.com/).

Go to Zenfolio and click on the Photo Galleries link at the top of the page. Open Historical Photos and you will find images from the history of Cal State San Bernardino. When you have a chance please go to any of the photos and add information – just click on a photo and add a comment.
