Hedges Around Founders Court

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:

Pitzer on front side of Lovett 1968

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.

Bonus: Big trees, no hedges 2012

    Presidents didn’t want photogs dogging them on the way home?

    BTW, your bonus picture took me back to the 60s when many if not most hard woods had their trunks painted white, allegedly to keep bugs off of them.

  3. I like the tree better than the gates.
