WHO, WHAT, WHEN


GONE FISHIN’? Who are these boaters, and what are they up to? Did you ever take part in similar aquatic activities? If you have an answer, tell us the story at 518-580-5747, srosenbe@skidmore.edu, or Scope c/o Skidmore College. We’ll report answers, and run a new quiz, in the upcoming Scope magazine.


FROM LAST TIME


Winter sports? Scope has finally stumped the alumni body: nobody could provide information about this old-time photo- graph. Skidmore’s archivist Wendy Anthony and its historian Prof. Mary C. Lynn agree that the clothing styles and sports gear place it in the 1920s or ’30s, and the weath- er suggests it may have been part of a Winter Carnival or other campus festival. While such events in that era typi- cally featured snow-sculpture


contests along with winter sports from ice hockey matches to ski-joring behind horses, it’s not known why the pictured stu- dents are armed with baseball mitts as well as hockey sticks and netting. The woman under the net looks something like Prof. Harriet Brown, and un- like either dean of the era, Margaret Bridgman or Sarah Gridley Ross; her identity remains unconfirmed. Answers, or even guesses, would be welcomed.
