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.

O'Hollaren celebrate their first place awards at CIPA in 1970.
Amidst the 1970 CIPA awards celebration, Daily Titan and Iconoclast
adviser Wayne Overbeck and Titan editor Bill Schreiber were thrown

became the second editor of the Daily Titan, offers towels and sympathy.
