whatattic insulation was used in southern cali homes in '64

What type of attic insulation was used in southern california homes in 1964? This stuff looks like grey dust bunnies. Just wondering because after a recent remodel I am finding it on the floor of my infant daughters room.

You have a pic? Vermiculite and Zonolite was popular in the 50's and 60's I believe...
