Alumni Costume Balls from the 20s and 30s

Throughout the twenties and thirties, the Alumni Association was responsible for organizing elaborate costume balls for the students, faculty and alumni. For each themed ball, a room of the school was transformed with festive, handmade decorations and attendees labored over the design of intricate and inventive costumes. This selection of photographs from Moore’s Archives illustrates the hard work and creativity of the Alumni Association and those involved.
