1965 Ohio State University Yearbook

Now that I am living in Columbus I thought that it was the perfect time to dig into some of OSU’s old yearbooks. I decided to start with 1965 for no particular reason although Teruyoshi Hayashida’s Take Ivy was written that year, but I won’t pretend that is why chose it. I was just pretty sure that it would have some cool pics and I don’t think that I was wrong.

Maybe you will find some vintage inspiration in the pictures below or even a gentle reminder of things not to do (like wear black shoes!). I myself was reminded that getting haircuts is always cool, to have more fun, and to always wear sunglasses when possible. I was also left reminiscing on student life and all the good parts of college days. Lots more OSU yearbooks to go through tuned!

    Now that I’ve grown up, I wear black shoes with charcoal trousers. It’s very liberating not having to stick to cordovan.

  2. Woofboxer says:

    I have got black shoes of course, but when I wear them I always find myself wishing I’d worn something more interesting.

  3. Paper Clip says:

    It is amazing all the tie and jacket wearing. It is incomprehensible to a child of the 80s!

    What a difference from when I entered Ohio State in 1969.

    One thing that looks a whole lot better these days: eyeglasses!

I would like to hear from you
