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

Nearly 20 alumni helped solve the mystery photo from the Fall 2022 issue. Now, can you help us identify these students, why they’re shaking hands, where they are, and when this happened?

Maybe the crest on the far right student’s jacket is a clue. Maybe the wallpaper and art behind them.

OWU Magazine would like to solve some of these mysteries from the archives. And we need your help. Please 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? We will publish the answers in the next OWU Magazine.

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