Today I'm offering for sale The 1946 "Shadow" Rider College Yearbook for Rider College which is located in Trenton, New Jersey. This graduating class is the first graduating class after the end of WWII. I can't imagine the relief the Senior Class along with the Sophomore-Junior classmates felt because they no longer needed to worry about being drafted into the Armed Forces.
The graduating class was made up of 19 men and 161 women. I'm sure the reason for the big difference is because of WWII and men being drafted or enlisted over the last five years. The yearbook has 164 pages packed with loads of photos of the graduating class which capture their great memories and happy times they spent together in their senior year.
The sports were made up of men's and women's basketball, men's and women's softball, men's and women's bowling, swimming, track, tennis, riding, and archery. Missing is football because of the lack of enough men on campus.
The men's fraternities were: Phi Sigma NU---Sigma Lambda PI—and Kappa PHI. The women's fraternities were: Gamma---Pi ETA Sigma---Sigma TAU DELTA---Sigma IOTA CHI—and ZETA MU EPSILON. The women's living quarters were named: Mary Hooper Hall---Edith Wright Hall---Hamilton Hall---Clinton Cottage---Greenwood Hall---East Hall---South Hall---Smith Hall---Lockwood Hall---and Seddon Dorm.
With the Mayfair Dance and Party being the highlight of the year, picking the Queen and her court was exciting and everyone couldn't wait to see who were chosen. Featured in the back of the book are full page photos of the Queen and 9 members of her court. Boy, they look like movie stars.
