Fitting In: Four Generations of College Life
About the lives of the women and men who attended college in Chicago during the 1890s, 1920s, 1940s, and 1960s focusing more more on the style rather that the clothing itself. The fashions are used as primary sources to provide information about the lives of college students. Costumes are combined with other objects, such as a hip flask and a Frisbee, and archival material, such as letters and scrapbooks, to capture the essence of the college experience. Paperback. 76 pages.
