Founded as the Fresno State Normal School in 1911, became Fresno State College in 1949, and in 1972 the name was officially changed to California State University, Fresno. It is a public research university and one of 23 campuses within the California State University system. The university is located at the northeast edge of Fresno, the fifth largest city in California.
Lance Nix, a former student of this university, took these amazing photos during his college years. They show portraits of students of the Fresno State College in the 1960s. Of course, most of them were his friends.
