Family Album: Vanished Into Thin Air?


This picture from 1942 has captured the imagination of all whose lives it has touched since Archivist Jan Blodgett discovered it on a quest for legacy graduation photos. Problem is, nobody seems to know exactly what is going on here, except that it looks like things could get ugly. Did the truck with the tables break down? Are these parents of underclassmen bargain-hunting for next year’s robes after the ceremony? Is this a senior prank gone horribly wrong? The Rapture? If you or someone you love can shed light on this moment from our communal past, please let us know at or 704-894-2242.
