Pride and Gratitude: two eras, two yearbooks


What can college yearbooks tell us about students’ lives at two important moments in US history? This essay will analyze the 1936 and 1950 Ramblers, college yearbooks from San Benito Junior College. The dates are equidistant from the US entry into World War II, the biggest event in US history and in the lives of most who experienced it.
