College life 1939 style

Ah, the joys of college dormitory life! This 1939 photograph shows a women’s dormitory room on the campus of Indiana State Teachers College, now known as Indiana State University. Taken by a photographer at Martin’s Photo Shop, this image was probably used in recruiting tools. And just like students today, there always has to be one student who is constantly preening herself!

This photograph is just one of the many holdings of the Indiana State University Archives, 650 Eagle Street in Terre Haute. To view more images from the ISU Archives, click here.
