Orange County Illustrated, Troubleman Cottage, etc

The O.C. Archives just aquired a bound set of Orange County Illustrated magazine. Although missing two volumes (1962-63 and 1970) this will still be a great resource for anyone who wants to know more about O.C. in the 1960s and '70s. (And if you stumble across the missing volumes at a yard sale somewhere, please send me an email.)

This is the last week to see "The Anaheim Home Companion": A stage play celebrating the history of Anaheim. The play runs through Dec. 17th at the Chance Theater in Anaheim.

Fullerton Union High School's Academy of the Arts will sell wall calendars for 2007 illustrated with photos of FUHS's taken between 1893 and 1950. (Link)

Capistrano planners turned thumbs down on removing an old tree in order to relocate the Troubleman Cottage. The owner plans to appeal to the City Council.

Do you know of any place that has the October 1966 issue of Orange County Illustrated available online (color scan)?

I have a B&W copy of pages 18-63 which has a long feature on the CSUF campus and some of the buildings that were split off and later became Pacific Christian College now Hope International University and other nearby buildings.

I sure would like to see those old pictures and renderings.

No, but bound copies can be found in the reference library of the Orange County Archives. You might also check all of 1966, not just Oct.

I know, for instance, that there's also an article about some of those buildings (which are now Pacific Christian College) in the Aug. 1966 issue.
