Wittenberg University 1964


Wittenberberg University was founded in 1845. It started as a clergy school but overtime became a private four year liberal university. It is located in Springfield, Ohio. It is also a place where trad, ivy and preppy still have a place to call home. However, you will see students dressed in all styles of clothing as at any college today, but there remains a large trad/preppy element. As I was flipping through all an old year book from 1964 there were too may images to keep to myself. This will be theĀ  first of many installments that feature images from Wittenberg University. I hope that you enjoy them.

    I grew up in New Carlisle, not far from Springfield, and, in high school, we would take trips around the parks near Wittenberg to talk to college girls (though none wanted to talk to us, I don’t think!). The early 80s were good in that area, but it’s a pity to see how Springfield has declined since then.
