As I said last week, Tony Visco handed me a blast from our Alma mater’s past — The Philadelphia College of Art’s yearbook from 1968!
They didn’t call it a yearbook. It was a battered slipcase containing two books and titled The Philadelphia College of Art Annual 1968. It features 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 Photographers graduating in 1968. I’m not sure who’s who, but here they are:
I’ll scan and photograph more of this this book and post the results in coming weeks. Stay tuned!
I graduated from high school in ’68 and the look was the same – a mix of preppy, nerdy, and nearly bohemian.
They probably did stick out at the time. Philly was still a suit and tie town back then.
