’60s college hallway hijinks

Posted by Jenny in Score! | 10 Comments

First we had all those ’60s college kegger photos … now let’s see what those crazy WSU kids got up to when they weren’t out drinking in a field! These pictures were taken in what I assume is either a dorm or a frat — some place where a bunch of these guys must have lived. I recognized some of the same kids from the outdoor pictures, but there are no girls in this bunch.

Apparently these guys liked to pull pranks. Here’s a shot of the old “let’s fill up his room with crumpled newspaper” gag.

I’m not sure what is going on here, but it looks suspicious.

Even in the shots where not much is happening, you kind of get the feeling they’re up to something.

Then there’s a series of shots where they’re bandaging a guy up and putting him on a stretcher.

What happened after this, who knows — the photos only show him being carried down the hall.

But there is a picture of what was underneath all those bandages!

Along with the pranks, they liked to play cards.

And drink.

We think that shot was probably staged. But this one looks genuine.

There’s this one photo where someone has a gun.

And a couple of amazing underwear pics.

Man. Have I mentioned how much I love these photos?!? The entire set is here — all these and more, including a few shots of the field at a college football game, even though that’s way less interesting in my book. Enjoy!

    As I was laughing and scrolling through the pictures, I realized they looked very familar. I lived in the same WSU dorm, Orton Hall, during my freshman year in college, 1989-1990. The furniture and drapes were the same during that time. That winter, I even collected Wall Street Journals from all my business major friends and in early spring we newspapered our RA’s room when he went home for a weekend. His room smelled of ink for an entire month. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

    Thanks again for sharing. Love them! So jealous that you got them for $1 a box!

    The “suspicious” gizmo the guy is holding to the door in shot #4 is an old-fashioned pump sprayer, of the kind used for pesticides. Even if he’s spraying something relatively harmless under there, which is very unlikely in the mid-60s, the residue from previous uses is bound to be appalling. Strong possibility of DDT.
