My high school was founded after World War II and started a football game rivalry with equally tiny high school where the prize is a bronzed shoe. For all those years, slightly after the founding of the school, alums from their school and my school, even senior citizens, talk about who "won" the "shoe". OK, I am a redneck (from Asian farmer stock, common in California then) and before anybody puts in a Jeff Foxworthy joke, I said it, there! At least we are not fighting over a bronzed horseshoe. My college started, ok you guessed it, as an ag school. But before that in 1901, they built up the location and started it as a "high school" in 1903, became a two year college by 1933, and offered their first BA in 1940. I did my first 2.5 years there. It is now Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo. My second college, where I finished the remainder of undergrad, started in 1853 as a religious Young Men's Christian Association school as a reading room, and added a law school in 1901, and then was named Golden Gate College in 1923, much later to be called Golden Gate University. Even great world class schools, which I was never able to get into, had humble beginnings like the above schools. Guess this school. Started in 1855 from horse farm, offered four year degrees but was called L.S. Junior College, but did not open its doors until far later in 1891 and had a little known youngster sleep in their dorms on the first night. This kid became President many years later. Guess that school.
