Two male Fairfield University freshman don beanies as part of the orientation process.
Freshman hazing and the wearing of beanies, once considered a rite of passage for incoming freshmen in all-male colleges, evolved into more comprehensive freshman orientation activities in the late sixties and early seventies. Here the students wear beanies strictly for fun. This is part of a larger series of 11" x 14" photographs labeled "display prints" - some of which are mounted on boards. Image date is approximate.
Photographic print; black-and-white; 11 x 14 in.
