Vintage Dandy: 1949 Princeton University Yearbook

I was at a flea market this weekend and picked up a copy of a 1949 Princeton yearbook. The men's style was amazing. Guys didn't dress like that when I was in school. Was it a sign of the times or the fact that Princeton is an Ivy League school? Probably a bit of both.

I was immediately struck by a photo of the 21 club, a mysterious, exclusive social club. Each guy was impeccably dressed in such an iconic collegiate style. As I was looking at the photo I chose the third guy from the right in the front row as the most fine and dandy. I was shocked to see his name, C. W. Henry. Is he a long lost great-uncle?
