As a follow-up to our post on Country Club Prep, which was founded by two men who met at the University of Virginia School of Law, we’ll take a look at UVA during the heyday, a subject we haven’t looked at since last Thanksgiving.

Ed Roseberry was a local photographer who chronicled life around Charlottesville, and last year his photos went on display at the school.

Perhaps someone should ferret out the sartorial shots and package them as a kind of “Take Ivy” style chronicle. In the meantime, here’s a sampling. — CS & CC

Today is International Pipe Smoking Day. You don’t need to be a young fogey or Republican to celebrate it, though it probably helps.

Pictured above is a photo that originally appeared in LIFE Magazine in 1963. You can buy a print of it at AllPosters.com where it bears the title “Pipe Smokers Listening to Speech by Senator Barry M. Goldwater at Young Republican Convention.”

Puff away. It’ll help you stay warm. — CC

Head over there to check out the well organized collection of advertisements, photos and articles related to the Ivy heyday.
