Time travel is not possible…yet! However, if you are interested in the life of college students and faculty from the early 1900’s this lot of images from Carthage College, Carthage, Illinois is definitely a must have!

This lot includes a Carthage College Bulletin dated May 1932. Folded this item measures approximately 6.5” side to side and 9” top to bottom. Unfolded it is approximately 25” side to side and is 14.25” top to bottom. There are three sheets with images that appear to have been pages torn from a Highschool Yearbook. Each measure approximately 6” side to side and 9.25” top to bottom, however, as they appeared to have been torn from a book, the left margin is uneven and jagged. Finally, there are three class images mounted on cardboard weight paper, with the pictured student’s names inscribed on the reverse. The images vary in size from approximately 8.5” to 6.5” side to side and approximately 4.25” to 5.25” top to bottom.

These items all exhibit discoloration, minor tears, slight water damage and fold marks attributable to age, use and wear. Please examine the listing images carefully to fully appreciate the condition of these items. Also, with exception of the folded bulletin, all the images have various handwritten inscriptions on them identifying the subjects and/or location. There is a unique doodle of an unknown subject affixed to one of the yearbook pages and one inscription hints at the authors sense of humor in a “Where’s Waldo-esque” jibe at the photographer of an image of the Basketball team where one player, presumably “Bob”, is “headless”.

This is an awesome collection of memorabilia for an avid historian!
