This collection documents the 1960-1967 history of Junior College of Broward County, through contemporary newspaper clippings from the South Florida press. This digital collection is part of the larger Broward College Scrapbook Collection, [Record Group 300], made up of 22 oversized scrapbooks documenting the college from 1960 to 1986 and available in Archives and Special Collections. After 1986, the scrapbooks ceased and college related news clippings are maintained in boxed files.
The icon for this collection depicts Grady Drake (1922-2019), the first director of Libraries at Broward College from the college's founding in 1960 to his retirement in 1989. The Scrapbook Collection is dedicated to his memory and for his many contributions to the students and faculty of Broward College.
Special thanks to the staff of the Hollywood Historical Society for providing access to their bound collection of the Hollywood Sun-Tattler to facilitate our research.
