Vassar College 1939

Filmed by Margaret Loose Krell '39, this footage includes rare glimpses of the Arlington shopping district—the Juliet Theater (playing "The Oklahoma Kid" with James Cagney), "Mrs. Frazier's Dutch Cabin," and Peck and Peck, among others. The filmmaker's focus is on her circle of friends, who appear in various scenarios—sunning themselves on the quad, wading in Sunset Lake, playing golf, taking the annual senior boat trip on the Hudson. She also covers major campus events—Class Day with the Daisy Chain, Founder's Day, the student-faculty softball game, and reunion.
