More good finds from the Life photo archive on Google. Looks like this photo was taken near the current day Art History library, guessing by the location of Massachusettes Hall on the right side of the frame. I wonder when Bowdoin took out the seats built around the trees? What a shame, they look pretty neat.
Even better are the guy's loafers. LL Bean or Quoddy moccasins? Not sure. Regardless, pretty classic. I also like the terry cloth polo shirt.
What are they reading? I bet they're reviewing a list of chants for the upcoming Bowdoin/Colby hockey game.
