After reading the comments on yesterday’s post I went back and took a second look at the pictures. I have now learned quite a bit about various military uniforms, which is one of those things that might actually turn out to be useful someday, so many thanks to Marty for the education.
I also noticed something else in this image–newly planted hedges around the sides and back of Founders Court:
I’d forgotten that they were ever there but on reflection I think they must have been taken out not all that long ago. I also remembered another photograph with those hedges in the background:
This photo is dated 1968, near the other end of Pitzer’s presidency. (It’s a bit unusual, by the way. There aren’t many pictures of people in this vicinity.) Those hedges grow pretty fast.
