“Why Boys Come to Maryland”

Reveille 1925
“Why Boys Come to Maryland” sketch               (click to enlarge)

We found this great sketch in the 1925 Reveille, the University of Maryland yearbook, that seems to imply flapper girls comprised the majority of the female population on campus.  The drawings, attributed to Julia Louise Behring – Class of 1927, paint the comely UMD co-eds as look-alikes to characters in an F. Scott Fitzgerald story.  For anyone looking forward to the new Great Gatsby movie (in theaters May 10), these photos should hold you over until then. View a sampling of prom photographs below, along with other drawings from the 1920s yearbooks.
