Last week I was very kindly given a packet of photos that emerged from some cranny over in Biology. They’re all pretty interesting, although a bit of a hodgepodge across time and space. (One side note: I never would have thought there could be so many pictures of Ron Sass! I might do a post some day on the evolution of his hair styles.)
I think the best image I found is this group photo of the Biology faculty taken for the 1966 Campanile:
I was immediately struck by the presence of Joseph Davies, sitting at the left front, and began thinking about when he first turned up in a Campanile. The answer is that he appeared with the rest of the Biology faculty and some students in the very first one, produced in 1916:
That’s him, again seated at the left front.
I turned to the 1966 yearbook to learn the names of some of the other faculty in the top picture and I was moved to discover that the students had dedicated it to his memory after he died just at the end of his last school year:
Bonus: I saw this in Portland. I’d never seen one before.
