This classic volume contains stories of student life in the late 19th Century at one of America's oldest colleges, Bowdoin College. Published in 1901, the stories reveal a bygone era and many have the ring of true experience. Stories about famous American professors and student pranks and prejudices, about athletics and academics as they once existed. Not only are these fascinating and often amusing portraits of student life, but they also contain scenes of Maine life more than 100 years ago. Well illustrated, these stories include writings of Bowdoin presidents William DeW. Hyde and Kenneth C.M. Sills and by U.S. House Speaker Thomas B. Reed. This new edition features a preface by Barry Mills, 14th president of the Bowdoin College.
