When California State University, Northridge was established in 1957 Dr. Williams came to the Northridge Campus as its first Dean of Admissions, bringing the Normal School Collection with him. The origins of the Normal School in California date back to 1857, when the City Normal School was established in San Francisco. Their purpose was the education of future primary and secondary teachers for the public school systems. The collection is composed of printed catalogs, bulletins, announcements and reports on the State Normal Schools in California from 1881-1930.
