When Your Tie Dress Is Extra

1972

Let’s Make Hay

These Jayhawk college students have just taken a hayride out to the country to enjoy a campfire and REEEEEEEACH for some flame-grilled wieners during the autumn of 1946.

Below, Eugene Ryan grins for the camera, satisfied with a full belly and frosty beverage.

After dinner, Charlie Byers feeds Mary Jane “Zolly” Zollinger an ice cream bar. Careful, Charlie.

As the embers begin to dim, a trio from Locksley Hall pipes up with three part harmony. Lorraine Mai, Violet Orloff, and Dessie Hunter round out the evening before everyone loads up for the homeward trip.

Now what’s that fellow so upset about?

Stop The Cough With OG Tussin

Cactus 1938

Bottles of syrupus tolu and menthol tussin play a role in stopping the cough. While you wait, roam around the drug store and peruse its wares.

Crossing campus can be a tricky affair.

UT ’33

Social circles cross, and conversations must be had.

What’s the tea for ’33?

The old chap on the far left appears to be escaped British royalty, perhaps setting the precedent for Harry and Meghan.

So many sights to see!

Such sweet smiles on the faces of youth as they head into their future.

Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

The 1933 Retama yearbook is full of travel-related illustrations, encouraging its students to make use of modern transportation.

Even the yearbook cover is a wonderful map itself. I especially like the windblower!
