Title

1928 May Day Procession from Marsh Hall

Description

A photograph of the 1928 May Day procession. The procession is leading out from Marsh Hall. The May Day celebration tradition at Pacific University began in 1914, and would continue for over 50 years. A student would be crowned 'Queen of the May'. The event would often include a double-line procession. A luncheon, singing, athletic competitions and other activities would be enjoyed by students and members of the Forest Grove community. A maypole would be erected and young ladies dressed in white would wind ribbon around it. This photograph appears in an album that was compiled by Edith Hansen McGill, a 1930 Pacific University graduate.
