The photo above is from Rice University, 1965. Let’s hope this wasn’t taken on Christmas Eve, with this poor fellow the only one left on campus when everyone else was home for the holidays.
Note that 50 years ago Christmas trees could still be placed in public spaces on college campuses, and anyone who felt offended and excluded would just have to deal with it and move on to more pressing matters, such as getting an education.
Merry Christmas from Ivy Style. — CHRISTIAN CHENSVOLD
