Student and Faculty Life at William & Mary from 1950

ID : 1386   
« back to classes page
William & Mary’s history arbitrarily falls into five discrete divisions—Colonial period, Revolution through Reconstruction, college for teachers, small public Ivy, and small university. This talk focuses on the 1950s through 2020. It includes such stories as the burning of Jefferson dormitory, dress code and curfews for women students, the Green Machine, George’s restaurant, the new law school, the four-year roommate lunch, a noted faculty dog, quotations from classes, purloined tests, speaking styles of William & Mary presidents, academically indifferent slackers, students who were always one step ahead, and a eulogy for a provost.
