A new member of the PDHC, Glendale Community College’s collection features photographs and documents depicting life at Glendale Community College from its founding in 1927 to serve the needs of the people of La Crescenta, Glendale, and Tujunga.  In 1936 twenty-five acres were acquired for the present site of the college.  Photographs in the collection document the construction of the original campus buildings as well as campus life into the 1980s.
