Re: Tech Ivy

Thanks so much for the posting all the pics WM!!! Great stuff. Real life and no commercial styling are my favorite things about looking at yearbooks.

Re: Tech Ivy

Yes.  There were girls on campus.  Being a technical engineering college, the females amongst students were few and far between.  It seems some of the most beautiful young women to be found on campus were often imports brought in by fraternities and student committees from nearby local schools like Emory University and Agnes Scott College.  They would attend special events and parties in hopes of getting the male student body to drop their drafting kits and Variacs for a few fleeting moments of enjoyment.

And yet these pics are so much better than Talk Ivy. So much more stylish. I like to see all those English people with their white T.s under their buttondowns too... wink

Just as a side point I think when it comes to retail we all have to grow up and admit that the selling of clothes is a business that involves marketing. When we are talking about Ivy clothing we are talking about a retail business. All the romantic cultural stuff about college boys setting the pace is all very well, but the reality is that these clothes were made, marketed and sold. In shops, even !

Any story of Ivy clothing that omits the realities of the retail trade is no real story at all.


What the world needs now is love, sweet love... And a jolly good kick up the harris.

Re: Tech Ivy

I have quite a few old yearbooks.  It's pretty time consuming to get the pictures together and post them.  I've been meaning to get these on here for a while and just got the itch to do it last night.  I wanted to scan them, but Mrs. WM and I couldn't get the scanner to function.  It's an ancient scanner anyway, so I may get a new one since they're relatively cheap now, and better quality. 

Glad you guys are enjoying the pics.

Superb pics, the tech universities where always ahead of the game on the campus, especially jazz wise. Indeed several musicians where Engineering graduates, Bill Perkins for example, who actually went back into this field in the Sixties.

Technical campus's enjoyed a much better status back then - when society recognised you needed individuals trained in the hard, but creative disciplines of engineering, science and physics to compete and lead the world.

Might try to get some pics up of the '64 Tech Blueprint soon.  Just a year earlier than these, but still some quality stuff worth posting.
