This week, Bwog took a trip down memory lane in the Rare Books and Manuscript Library. If you haven’t done research there, we recommend it—in their archives are all of the undergraduate yearbooks back to the 1890s. And a lot of other important historical documents, too. After a short process of creating an account in the library system, we were able to look at the yearbooks in the reading room. First up was 1914.
On to 1921. Ah, the roaring twenties. Some gems from this yearbook include impressive drawings of Columbia buildings, some old pictures of frats looking classy, and the revelation that before the Varsity Show was coed, they had to make do with boys in dresses.
