Brothers College

Brothers College

Brothers College was founded in 1928.  The letter from Arthur and Leonard Baldwin to the Board of Trustees offering to endow the school appears here for the first time.  College students in the 1930s took part in dances like the one pictured in this case.  Incoming freshmen had to follow strict regulations about their dress and behavior, but they were allowed to select the colors green and gold to represent the new undergraduate college. From 1943 to the end of the Second World War,

U. S. Navy V-12 sailors/students lived in the rechristened U.S.S. Hoyt-Bowne.
