On this day in 1952…

On March 21, 1952, Loyola’s The Maroon headlines included a Russian Jesuit visiting to speak, Loyola College of Arts and Sciences offering engineering as a course of study, and pharmacy students earning merit scholastic awards.

Perhaps the most interesting article is a previous feature of The Maroon called “Society Notes.” The article discusses St. Patrick day celebrations and who was seen at the Provost Corps dance the previous weekend. Moreover, the article discusses a Beggars party and the new at the time music fraternity Lamba Mu Delta. Imagine if The Maroon did this today…sounds like a 50s version of Gossip Girl to me!
