Swimming at Clearwater Pond, Industry, 1929

Contributed by Mantor Library at UMF


The adventurous Farmington State Normal School students in Dolly Dunphy's "third floor gang" of Purington Hall enjoyed swimming in the nude. While it may have been cause for much merriment, it wasn't without risks. Poor Dolly once got a bad case of poison ivy that resulted in a rash all over her body. She lamented in her scrapbook that she looked for a cure for weeks!
