Charter Gala, 1946

The photograph above was taken at the 1946 Charter Banquet, also held at the Palace. That night the poet Robert Frost was awarded an honorary degree by the University and then-Governor and future Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Earl Warren ’12 was honored as Alumnus of the Year.

Many of the images are somewhat random and lacking anything much in the way of identifying information.

So here’s the first installment: The baseball team in 1879.
