Old school photo of the month: 1957 Skip Day Band

April 13, 2011

Each month, we'll explore our archives and showcase a photo that captures the spirit of Drake University from a historical perspective.

"Skip day, the traditional day off from classes expected to follow one important football victory, this season contained the usual spontaneity of the coming of Christmas..." Photo by Lou Sepersky, LA'57, for the Quax, 1957.

Cowles Library invites alumni to electronically browse past issues of Quax and other archives by visiting the Drake Heritage Collection online.

Please share your skip day memories and clever captions in the comments section.
