Wittenberg University 1958


It is time for the second installment of vintage pictures from Wittenberg University. The first installment featured pictures from 1964 (have a look here). This time I am traveling a little further back to 1958. This was a year that saw Elvis Presley join the Army, the formation of NASA, and “Johnny Be Good” released. It is also a time when penny loafers, sports jackets and shetlands were the norm on college campuses and after looking through hundreds of pictures it appears it was a time when 9 out of 10 young women wore pearls in their class pictures. In hindsight I should have included more casual pics of students, but there is always next time. Enjoy the pics!

    How I adore these women. A couple of them in the group photos aren’t dressed very differently from some of the gals I went to high school with in the early 80s.

I would like to hear from you
