The First Band (or part of it, anyway), circa 1915

This is a very early photo, I’d guess 1914 or 1915. I found it in the scrapbook of a 1916 grad and the band, which had been started on the initiative of my old friend W.T. Betts, had uniforms by 1916. There’s a certain Mob-like vibe, isn’t there?

    The band: wow. The more things change the more they stay the same.

    Bonus: I like “Rat Barn.”

    The drummer’s cap is something else.
