Graduation Event: Photograph, circa 1920'sMC2011/179 

This photograph of a graduation event is not titled or dated so one can not be sure if it related to Manchester College or not.  It was found with photographs of Manchester College, Mount Morris College and pictures related to the Church of the Brethren.  The image was made by "Rickert Studio, Huntington, Indiana," a town close to Manchester College, so therefore could be Manchester College or a related institution.  Evidence pointing away from Manchester College comes from the lack of individuals dressed in Brethren garb. There might be one man in a Brethren collar at the back table towards the viewer's left. Manchester College Faculty and Staff are not identifable.
