"If your picture is fuzzy and your name is spelled backwards, we apologize, but we did our best."
So said the editor of the Princeton yearbook in 1966. The 'Bric-A-Brac' had some great years in the '60s and a couple not so great. '66 was exceptional and like any good year book it captured a time not just for the students but, it turns out, for those of us who didn't have the SAT or the net worth.
Who knew we'd be admiring the insouciant ease of high water khakis and white socks 45years later. What really strikes me is the reality of it all. This is not a carefully staged Polo ad shot by Bruce Weber but simply the day to day of a school year shot by a freshman.
It would have made more sense to post images from the '64 -'65 yearbook - the year Take Ivy was shot on campus - but the '66 yearbook is so good I couldn't wait. I promise to post '65 tomorrow. Until then, enjoy a look at Princeton and 1966 from the student perspective. Different from Take Ivy but no less artful.
