Dormitory Gab Session, 1940s

It’s been a long and fun year. We’re counting down to LDOC with Duke University Archives photos of Duke students having a good time! (Click the photo to see it on our Flickr photostream, Duke Yearlook.)

Think these 1940s co-eds are just relaxing with some bon-bons at the end of a tough day of classes? Not at all: this is actually a high-level meeting to plan a holiday dance!

Countdown to LDOC:
