Shot by Alfred Eisenstaedt, the same photographer who brought us the wonderfully atmospheric shots of New Haven commuters.

  1. Awful photographic technique. Wish my mom and dad were in the pictures though.

    Are you sure those pictures are from commencement? That looks much more like Eliot House’s annual spring formal, the ‘Eliot FĂȘte.’

    According to the Life archives, these are from commencement. But I’ve found errors in the labeling of images there before.
