Daily Titan 45th reunion photos

(taken Nov. 6, 2005)

More captions will be added as soon as possible. If you have photos of the reunion, please send them to Wayne Overbeck  for posting here.  Where a caption lists a series of names, the identification is left to right.


Chuck Loyd (left) was the first editor of any student publication at what is now California State University, Fullerton.  He was the founding editor of the Titan Times at Orange County State College in 1959-60.  Chuck is now retired after a long career as a school administrator in the San Jose area.  With him is Jim Drummond, the editor who made the Titan Times a twice-weekly newspaper in 1965.  Drummond is the historian of CSUF journalism; his detailed chronology is on this website as well as the Daily Titan's new official history website.

Gary Lycan was the fall, 1966 Titan Times editor.  He recently retired after a 40-year career at the Orange County Register but still writes the Register's weekly radio column.

Then and now:  by moving a mere 600 pixels down the page, we've traversed 45 years.  This is a group of current (2005) Daily Titan advertising staff members.  They are (from left) Ryan Smith, Lesley Wu, Can Sengezer, Sarah Oak, Jackie Kimmel, Leanne Saita, Victoria Scott and Emily Alford.  In the background is another group of Daily Titan staffers with the current editorial adviser, Tom Clanin (immediately left of Jackie Kimmel).

A group of early-2000s Daily Titan editorial staffers (from left):  Laura Gaghan, Elana Pruitt, Abigail Siena, Lisette Lebrilla, Drew Farrington, Jessi McFarland and Kim Pierceall.

This is a group of Daily Titan alumni from Dean Rick Pullen's era as faculty adviser.  They are (from left) David Ferrell (an active author, retired from the L.A. Times), Roy Rivenburg (L.A. Times), Scott Harris (L.A. Times), Geno Effler (Aston Martin public affairs), John Millen (president, MPA Executive Communications), Dr. Pullen, Steve Nill (attorney) and Peter Schmuck (Baltimore Sun). 

Jay Berman's "cast of thousands" includes (from left) Cerise Valenzuela (Daily Breeze), David K. Li (New York Post), Wendy Geister (GearTrends), faculty adviser Berman (retired), Scott French (L.A.
