Bio History Note

A note on the verso of one photograph indicates that this picture is in the 1991 - 1992 Aurora, and that it is a a photograph of the last Ikenberry serenade performed before the residence was torn down.   This is a bit questionable because a different photo records the Ikenberry serenade in the 1991-1992 Aurora.  The photo in this collection that is actually in the 1991-1992 Aurora, pg. 41, is marked  with MC2004/131-12 on the verso. One student can be found in this picture as well as in the 1991 photo, but he is wearing a different outfit.

If this student appeared in 2 photos, then the photo not found in the 1991-1992 Aurora might match Ikenberry serenade pictures from a previous year.  Alas, the mystery photo does not match Ikenberry serenade snapshote in the 1989, 1990 and 1991 Auroras...and so, maybe there was indeed a special last performance of the Ikenberry Serenade, a picture that was not put into any yearbook?

Ikenberry was demolished in1992 and was replaced by Helman Hall.  Following this demolition, the tradition of serenading was discontinued.

Description prepared 8 May 2004 by Sara L. Smith, updated 16 September 2010 by Jeanine Wine, and last updated 29 September 2014 by Jeanine M. Wine.

 

Jeanine Wine pulled what serenading photographs she could find out of Photograph Box 106 (see below) to combine them into one file.  This seemed reasonable to do even though this meant combining some "collections."  Otherwise, one had to sort through the entire stack of photos in Box #106 to find images of this event.

Photographs, student life, see photo box #106.  These pictures include:  

  • 1987 Ikenberry Seranade.
  • 1989 Ikenberry Seranade.
  • 1991 Ikenberry Seranade (formerly in photo box #1 and is part of MC2004/131-12). Picture in 1992 Aurora. Perhaps the last serenade before Ikenberry was torn down.
  • Another photograph marked "Last Ikenberry Serenade, Aurora 1991-1992" (but not to be found in Aurora). One man can be found in this picture and  in the 1991 photo, but is wearing a different outfit. Other pictures are in the 1989, 1990 and 1991 Auroras...and so, maybe there was a special last performance of the Ikenberry Serenade?
  • Other photographs have been added to this file but the names and years have not been recorded to date.
