[Photo Album Pages]: Oberlin College
Oberlin, Ohio: 1941. Eleven loose sheets removed from a photo album measuring 9" x 12". A collection of 73 black and white and sepia toned photographs in various sizes from 2" x 3" to 3.5" x 9" with captions. Slight creasing and small tears else near fine. Removed pages from a girl's college photo album from 1941 while attending Oberlin. The assemblage begins in the girl's dorm with a group of friends reading on a bed with captioned nicknames like "Augsie," and "Fish." College sports are heavily featured including action scenes of archery, fencing, swimming, basketball games, baseball, and two panoramas of a football game. The year 1941 marked the 50th anniversary of the football program and it was documented here with photos of the speeches and the marching band. One section has individual head shots of the girls with commentary like "Barb and our dream man," under one that featured a poster of Frank Sinatra. A cool looking woman named "Bets" sits at a desk in a dorm room smoking, the picture of a budding fashionista. A nice compilation of Oberlin life in the 1940s.
