Graduation Day: 1925

Graduation Day: 1925

In going through my Dad's old family photos of the 1920s I found this photo to be of interest. I am sure the day was typically Iowa hot, but another photo showing a close up of Dad with his parents shows his gown unbuttoned, exposing a full dress Army uniform with jacket under the gown! How uncomfortable that must have been. Photographer unknown, Iowa City, Iowa, June 1925.
