Vassar College Archives: 1930s

28/03/2011 § 2 Comments

Imagine how happy I was to find out that Vassar College, a small liberal arts college located in Poughkeepsie, New York, recently began sharing photographs from their extensive archive on Flickr!  As the college was founded in 1861 — originally as a women’s college and the first of the “Seven Sisters” colleges — the nearly 1,000 images offer an amazing glimpse at Vassar student life through the ages.  Admission: As I’ve got a few friends who attended Vassar, I’ve also been hoping to find some blackmail material, but haven’t been lucky.  Yet.

For our first foray into the archive, I’ve selected some of my favorite images from the 1930s set:

FDR was the commencement speaker in 1931.
