The early annuals here at Gustavus feature cartoons of the senior class and professors, pages of college history, and were written in both English and Swedish. This page from the 1917 Gustavian features Ruth (Nelson) Lundgren ’17, senior class member. Each senior had their portrait in the caps and gowns, their activities at the school, a quote personifying them, a cartoon depicting their activities and character, as well as a brief paragraph describing them as a person. For more fun cartoons from other early years of the college, explore the Gustavus Timeline at https://gustavus.edu/150/timeline/.
