Touring my TBR Spreadsheet and Shelves – Random Treasures

Touring my TBR Spreadsheet and Shelves

Again this month I'm sharing some of the random treasures on my bookshelves.

The Hubster's grandmother graduated from the University of Oregon in 1925 and we have the yearbooks from the five years she was there (1920-1925).

I't's just fun to leaf through these and see the photos of life on campus in those years.

In 1920 the Oregon Football team made it to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena and played Harvard. They lost but were still proud of the way they played.

I think it's interesting that it's referred to as "The Harvard Game" instead of "The Rose Bowl" in the yearbook.

I love looking through these and it's interesting to see how many women were attending the University of Oregon in the early 19820's.

How cool! I love the football game photo and the clothing of the women. No flapper styles, though some bobbed hair.

Beth F: thanks - I think it's pretty cool that his grandmother went to U of O and also that we have all her yearbooks.
