April 23, 2008: From the Archives


Houseparties weekend may have been far more sedate in 1946 (the year this photo was taken, according to archivists) than what students experience today. A 2005 article in The Daily Princetonian described houseparties as “the most fun weekend of the year: a three-day all-out dressed-up debauch in all its unfettered and winsome glory.” This year houseparties will be May 2 and 3, with lawn parties on May 4. None of the students pictured or their dates were identified. Can any PAW readers name them?end of article
