ISU Graduation ceremonies, 1936.

ISU (the “N” was shed in 1964) held a series of graduation ceremonies for its various colleges Friday June 6 and Saturday June 7, 2016. Back in 1936, there was one graduation ceremony for all graduates, and it was staged on the Quad.
Seen here are unidentified faculty members presumably taking pride in the success of their many charges! Serving as university president at this time was Raymond W. Fairchild.
Who out there is an ISU (or ISNU) grad and has memories of their commencement ceremony? We’d love to hear from you!
