In the Archives: A Sartorial Timeline

Photos and campus publications in the University Archives have not only captured the history of the institution – they have captured the evolution of collegiate fashions at the Lake!

1911 — Students, seen here in uniforms and “square tops”, gathered between Mass and breakfast for morning exercises.

1929 – Golfing attire.

1933 – OLL ladies in an array of fashions.1946 – Members of the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine in holiday styles.

1956 – Roberta Burkholder’s dress would find more use in 21st century than her mimeograph machine.

1962 – Judy Davis and Phyllis Anderson, is it fur or faux?
