The Woodson has a pretty thorough collection of commencement materials and over time the individual folders have become a sort of catch-all for all kinds of things relating to each class. Tucked in the back of a file I found this letter from Roy Lively ’60, who describes an intriguing freshman class party activity. (Interestingly, I can’t tell who this was sent to. My best guess is Mary Bixby, who was the director of Friends of Fondren at the time, but I really don’t know.)
I had to dig around a bit but the list was there too. (Things don’t always go this smoothly, by the way. Maybe I’ll post an example tomorrow . . .) Anyway, here are the first couple of pages. The comments are charming. I’m especially fond of “indifferent.”
Bonus: This is the front page of the first issue of the 1957 Thresher. The 1956 issue lacks the neat map that shows how to get to the H&H Ranch for the picnic.
