Friday Follies: Wiess College Petition, 1969

I like that they asked so politely. On the whole these were not excessively polite times.

The surprising thing about this, I think, is the late date.

Bonus: The Sidewalk Not Taken.

    I was a high school senior in 1969. We weren’t allowed to wear blue jeans to school. (in suburban Washington, DC) In the fall of 1970 Hanszen College required ties at dinner and coats on Sunday. Of course, we were known as the “gentleman’s college.” (LOL) By fall 1971 all such requirements were gone…

      I beg to differ Len. A minor quibble, but the necktie rule died somewhat later and only after it was taken to the extreme by a few Gentlemen who wore ONLY a necktie. And for that matter, whatever happened to freshman serving?

    Yeah, Ira Gruber (longtime Hanszen associate and former Master) used to wear his Hanszen blazer to dinner occasionally.

    What people think of as the ’60s didn’t arrive in most of the country until the ’70s.

    I was in Will Rice, but I recognize a few names on that petition.
