Scenes of Early Vassar

"Scenes of Early Vassar" includes excerpts from three short clips, possibly filmed by the same student in the early 1930s. Highlights include glimpses of the famous armored tank given to Vassar by the French government after World War I, Founder's Day events, the student-faculty softball game, girls picking daisies for the Daisy Chain, hoop rolling, and square dancing. See if you can spot the young Elizabeth Drouilhet (the warden known to generations of Vassar students as "the Drou") and Henry Noble MacCracken. The originals were silent films; this version was created by the Office of Communications for Vassar's Sesquicentennial with an audio track of Vassar songs from an old recording.
