August 2011, Part 2

I was moving boxes in the Archives this morning and came across two large boxes of unidentified photos that, so far, stretch back as far as 1950. I'll be working through them, and sharing them here with you, in the next few months. Any help identifying people ,places and events in these photos is welcome. So far, there are some great additions to the ongoing Swamp Fox Collection project. On the top of the pile today:

August 2011

Summer is almost over and students are arriving on campus again. It's an exciting time.

I received a generous donation in the mail today, including these fantastic additions to the collection. Recognize them? Have stories about them? I'd love to hear them!
