Tony Visco recently handed me a blast from our Alma mater’s past. It was a battered slipcase containing two books and titled The Philadelphia College of Art Annual 1968. It’s a yearbook featuring beautiful photographs of each of the art school’s sections or disciplines. The photographers credited for the book are Fran Gallun, Joan Ruggles, Roy Martin and Anne Todd.
Below is a scan of the Printmakers from the class of 1968.
On the page opposite, the graduates are listed as Robert Bergey, Tatiana Bulba, Lynn Holcombe, Judy Schrager and Phyllis Thompson. Looks like one of the graduates was absent for this photo shoot.
I really wish my graduating class had a similar yearbook or even a crappy one. When I get together with former alumni, the subject always turns to whether we remember so-and-so. A yearbook would be very helpful.
I’ll scan and photograph more of this this book and post the results in coming weeks. Stay tuned!
