CSUF journalists, 1970 era

The Titan (not yet a daily) won the first place award for general excellence in the California Newspaper Publishers Association competition in 1969.  Editor Paul Attner accepted the award at the CNPA convention in San Francisco.  Shown in the photo are (from left):  J. William Maxwell (first chairman of the Communications Department), Bill Schreiber (later to serve as first editor of the Daily Titan), Allison Stiles, Attner, Nancy Hovland, Ed Chamberlain and Wayne Overbeck.  The CSUF newspaper went on to win CNPA honors many more times in subsequent years.

Ken Trust, a later editor of the Daily Titan, greets Gov. Reagan as Christine Torres and her sister Corrine Torres look on.  Although the Daily Titan often criticized Reagan editorially, the DT staffers considered him an important news source and were glad to have the chance to meet him.

In 1970, the Daily Titan and Iconoclast magazine dominated the California Intercollegiate Press Association convention.  Competing against representatives of about 20 other four-year universities, the Fullerton contingent won top general excellence awards in both the newspaper and magazine divisions in addition to many individual awards for journalistic excellence.  Here the staffs of both publications pose with their winnings.  CSUF has enjoyed great success at CIPA as well as CNPA over the years.

Amidst the 1970 CIPA awards celebration, Daily Titan and Iconoclast faculty adviser Wayne Overbeck and Titan editor Bill Schreiber were thrown into the pool at the Los Angeles Hilton.  Here Sylvia Onalfo, who became the second editor of the Daily Titan, offers towels and sympathy.
