Third floor inmates, Farmington State Normal School, ca. 1928

Contributed by Mantor Library at UMF

In the late 1920s and early 1930s, a group of girls living on the third floor of Purington Hall at Farmington State Normal School referred to themselves as the "angels", and the "the third floor gang". They had a reputation for being loud, fun, and boisterous as well as for breaking the rules. This image, from the scrapbook of one of the "Angel Alley" girls, Dolly Dunphy, is captioned "Some of the inmates of the third floor."
