The University Record published by the Graduating Class of the University of Pennsylvania. Commencement Day, June 15th, 1881.


A humorously and amply-illustrated production; a top-of-the line yearbook for this Ivy League school. In addition to a History of the Class of 1881, Class Prophecy, and Class Poem, the yearbook contains much on school societies, clubs, and athletic teams.

There is also a section on “Secret Fraternities” and caricatures of students and faculty members, plus humorous poetry etc. Even one of the advertisements at the end is a spoof: “A Good Looking Young Lady Wants to Secure a Husband from among the Members of the Graduating Class ... N.B. —A tall gentleman, with muscular arm, and little side-whiskers preferred.”
