Fifteenth Reunion, 1934

Remember these rascals from a few weeks back?

While I was looking for pictures of the back of Cohen House I stumbled upon a batch of fantastic images of their fifteenth reunion. The class reunions usually took place around commencement and they sure do seem to be dressed for summer.

I’m a little worried about that palm tree.

There’s quite a bit to look at here and I have not exhausted all the possibilities. To state what I’m sure is obvious, in the first picture we can see William Ward Watkin seated at far right:

The best thing in this one is the view of the backstop for the tennis court although the light fixture installed on the top right corner of the building also caught my attention. That wasn’t always there:

And there’s Dr. Lovett in his straw boater sort of jammed into the corner and math professor Griffith Evans standing right under that precarious palm:

They look like they’re enjoying each other’s company, don’t they?

    What great old pictures, as usual! I guess there must have been some sort of hat requirement for the females?
