A True Statement Piece

While searching through the Photo Files to create the Afro-American Society exhibition, we came across this great photograph. Two black women walk across campus -- one wears a shirt that simply says, "Dartmouth," while the other's t-shirt bears the phrase: "When better men are made, Dartmouth women will make them." Zing.  Unfortunately, we don't have any other information about the two women, or even a date for the photograph. If you recognize these women, please contact us!

We thought we might have this shirt in our collection, but we don't. Undergrads, take note: you might be wearing some totally rad (and historically-relevant) t-shirt that will get photographed and written up in the archival blog in 30 years.

If you want to see more of the images in this folder, you can come by and ask for the "Afro-American Society" Photo File, or you can access this image (and other images from the AAS Photo File) using our online database.
