This is an interesting little map. It came from a 1949 student handbook and it shows several things I wasn’t familiar with, including the infirmary, the numbered stadium gates, and which walkways were paved:
The red handwriting delineate where election signs were allowed. I don’t think this is a thing anymore, or at least I can’t recall seeing campaign signs stuck in the ground, but it was a very big deal back in the day. Here are some pictures from the 1958 election, the first following the advent of the college system, from the collection donated by David Davidson ’58. The transition from class elections to college elections hadn’t really been made yet and would prove to be a bit bumpy but this gives you a good look at how prolific the sign makers were. It’s interesting to note that in 1958 the main site was near Fondren, presumable the center of the most foot traffic:
Bonus: Before Fondren was built all the foot traffic was in and around the sallyport. This is from the 1946 election.
