The “Class Portraits” writing was on the edge of the box, and there are indeed a few portraits of a student doing lab work in the rest of the negatives of box 89.
There’s no information noted on the young woman.
Next are some images of Queens in the 1949 Mardi Gras parade.
Reba Watterson, from Yreka, CA, was one of the COP “celebrities” at the time. Reba was the Mardi Gras Queen in May 1948 and became Miss California that same year. That title brought her many hostess opportunities across the nation with extensive travel, accompanied by her mother.
She participated as Miss California in the Miss America pageant in 1948.
Reba Watterson also had a few lines as a receptionist in the movie “All the King’s Men”, mostly filmed in Stockton, with few scenes at the College of the Pacific. See below for reference.
She also portrayed Margaret Fleming in the 1949 COP theater production of “Margaret Fleming”
Three more portraits from a model shoot or a class assignment.
One image of dairy being bottled at a Golden State facility. Location or date are unknown.
And then there are few images of a specific building on campus.
As usual, there’s always more in a box than what the pencil marks allude to.
There are 5 more 1949 boxes to go through.
