Miskatonic Class of '25

A selection of yearbook portraits for the Miskatonic University class of '25.









I've started scanning material from some vintage college yearbooks for the Miskatonic University project. It's interesting to see the things that haven't really changed in close to a century, like the endless pages of student portraits and group shots of every sports team imaginable. Then you run across something like the Engineering Society's annual minstrel show in blackface, or the Ku Klux Klan honor society at a respected University, and you realize it was a totally different world.

I think you should have a "Junior Silver Twilight Lodge" MU club shot to play to that idea.

When I saw this photo, my first thought was "a Miskatonic class of 1910 reunion?"
