Postmarked February 1926, this card was a fun and quick way for the busy student to stay in touch with friends and family. Although it appears that Gus was pretty busy, we hope that everyone from the Class of 2014 will stop by the Library's First-Year Open House today from 4:30-6:00 p.m. in Baker Main Hall. Among the many activities designed to help you get to know the nine individual libraries that make up the Dartmouth College Library, you can use a letterpress to print a modern version of this card to let everyone know how you're doing. Staff in the Library's Book Arts Program will show you how.
