"Spring Day"

Query re "Spring Day," from an intern in Advancement, response below.

what you’re asking about has quite a history actually. There was a “May Day” sort of event that was very big here for years, c1902-1938, called Color Day. (See attached photo.) I even have some film footage, digitized, of several 1930s Color Days. Then later, in the ‘40s and ‘50s, they had a “Spring Day,” which was a student recruitment sort of thing. Later still, in the ‘70s, there was a spring event that was basically a big beer party with bands on the mall…


   Let me know more what you all need, what you’re planning, and I’ll see what I can find.
