And Just Like That Everybody’s Gone

Successful commencement ceremonies now behind us, the place clears out almost instantly. Here they are headed home after the 1924-25 academic year:

I’ll be in and out myself for most of the summer, with a move, a new grandson due in June, and an article to finish all keeping me busy. I’ll keep posting of course because I don’t know how to stop. Things might get a bit weird, though, (even more so than usual) as I’ll often need to rely on what I happen to have saved on my laptop. It’s kind of scary in there.

Bonus: I have two images from Brandon Martin, the campus videographer, both taken last Friday evening. The first was about 5:30, just before the decision was made to hold the Baccalaureate Convocation outside. (I believe I’m actually in this photograph, in a white shirt right on front of the speaker’s platform.)


It turns out the call was correct. Here’s the scene at 7:30:

    That is my favorite sentence for today. I love reading your blog. Just be sure to keep backing up the scary laptop!

      Thanks so much! I continue to be surprised by how many people read this. I thought they would all wander off after the centennial but in fact I’ve continued to gain readers. It makes me happy that others love the archives too.
