More about this marker. This marker is quite easy to miss: small and with little contrast against the rock to which it is mounted, which is placed rather unobtrusively amongst the weeds behind the other markers present.
Also see . . . Contra Costa College (Wikipedia). "The college was founded as West Contra Costa Junior College in 1949, with the first classes held in the spring of 1950 at a temporary location in the shuttered Kaiser Shipyards in Richmond, California. In 1957, a permanent campus was opened on Mission Bell Drive in downtown San Pablo." (Submitted on July 17, 2020.)
