    I was going through some items from the estates of my grandparents this weekend, and came across some items I thought fellow Penn State folks might enjoy:

    KDR fraternity mid 30s:

    KDR fraternity late 30s:

    [​IMG]

    Home-Economics majors late 30's:

    Grandma wbcincy on lawn of Old Main circa late 30s:

    [​IMG]

    Grandma wbcincy graduating late 30s:

    [​IMG]

    Grandma wbcincy graduation late 30s, with German Shepherd, Queen, who attended all of grandpa wbcincy's classes and frequented the Rathskeller:

    [​IMG]

    Beaver Field graduation, at the old location near the Nittany Lion Inn I believe:

    [​IMG]

    Beaver Field graduation 2:

    [​IMG]

    Grandma wbcincy at Old Main?

    [​IMG]

    The Corner Room 1953:

    [​IMG]

    And finally, grandma and grandpa wbcincy at his graduation late 30s. He would go on to Temple medical school, serve as a flight surgeon in the Pacific during WWII, and settle into a practice in Lock Haven:

    [​IMG]

    I also have some more photos of Bloomsburg and Highland Park in Pittsburgh in the 20s and Kittaning in the 40s I may post later for our PA people from those areas that might appreciate them..

    Look at how she is looking at him in the last picture: she adores him. Thank you for sharing. A proud, accomplished family you come from, born of passion, hard work, and love.

    Priceless. Love the old photos of PSU. Graduation at Beaver Field is unbelievable and was next to the water tower and NLI which was built in 1931.

    She did, and their love would last for nearly 70 years.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing these. It’s the connection many of us share across generations with good old State.

    It was a great looking at every one of these.

    Just because my left hand is hidden behind the gal I'm sitting with, shouldn't suggest any engagement in sexually stimulating caressing and touching is happening.

    YIKES, I hope the heck that isn't webcincy's grandmother I'm getting friendly with by doing a little back stroking. :oops:

    From the look on her face, I think you actually reached the girl two spots over.

    Maybe so cincy, but that gal sitting next to yours truly incognito, certainly is a cute one.
    Kar occasionally accuses me of living in the past. I believe i have a good reason.

    Large Blue Tulips arranged in a decorative head piece, during the after graduation festivities?

    Those 6-7 guys who were Home Ec. majors were pretty smart! I’ll bet there were -0- women in the picture of engineering graduates back then.

    I was going to say that the only pics more interesting might have been Sir Nittany Ziggy’s lineup of conquests from his time at dear Old State but I thought that would have been disrespectful. But now that you’ve weighed in....

    I’d love to see that lineup for sure fine sir.

    While Zig was no slouch, your giving me waaaayyyy too much credit MISTER mrtailgate! This reminds me of the Paul Simon song:
    If you took all the girls I knew
    When I was single
    And brought them all together for one night
    I know they'd never match
    My sweet imagination
    Everything looks worse in black and white
    Kodakchroooooooooooommmmmmmeeee!

    But at least some of them became Three Stooges fans for life! One of the benefits of coming into the Ziggster’s orbit was obtaining a fine appreciation for Shemp and the rest of the boys.
