Throwback Thursday: summer of ’43

Summer was anything but quiet at Yale in July 1943, when more than 7,000 students were on campus in both civilian and military programs. This photo appeared in our August 1943 issue with an article about the changes to Yale life. "As an undergraduate,” wrote D. M. Marshman Jr. ’45, “I was particularly interested to discover what other undergraduates, particularly those who had always been here, thought of being ordered around by drill instructors in what had always been their sacred playground. They do not like it very much.”
