Series III: Posters, 1909-1955

Series III consists of publicity posters from Varsity Shows from 1909 onwards. Posters are generally 11" by 17" in size and in good condition. Most posters are printed, however, some from the 1950s are handmade on card, with the image and title etched with paint and glitter: 1954's The Sky's the Limit features an excitable Alma Mater dancing alongside her owl. Posters are stored as part of the University Archive's Flat Files Collection, so the box numbers for this series refer to these flat file boxes.
