It is significant that the history of California’s oldest incorporated college has never been written in detail. A pamphlet and several lengthy newspaper and magazine articles have, to this time, sufficed. It therefore became my duty in writing this thesis to amass a quantity of material from the original sources.

The thesis represents the first half of a piece of work which ultimately, it is hoped, will portray a century of development by the College. It is expected that the complete work will be released shortly before the Centennial Celebration.
