What Was Going On Here?

OWU Archives has a large file of historic (a.k.a. old) photos labeled “Unknown.” Photos like this one.

What is happening here with these students? Why so happy? Or in despair?

OWU Magazine would like to solve some of these mysteries from the archives. And we need your help.

We plan to publish one of these photos in each issue, and we ask you to contact us if you know the story behind the photo. Who’s in the picture, what are they doing, and where and when was the photo taken?

If you can help solve the mystery of the photo above, please send us an email at magazine@owu.edu.
