The Green Collegians of Dartmouth College
The purpose of this website is to provide a forum for present and past members of the Green Collegians to exchange photos and reminiscences about the band, its music, its travels, and the good times we had.

Ron Thorburn has just (April 2003) sent me 19 black & white photos of the Green Collegians of the early 1950s. I'm going to put the first one here, and then make a list of the others so that you can download them one at a time. They will appear in a new browser window. Use the BACK button to return to this list. I'll work with Ron on captions and identities...

What a treasure! Thanks, Ron!

One of the waiters, a girl nicknamed "Ceel" (I think), and me at the pool at Happy Acres. At right, postcard from Mike Biggs, July 29, 1951.
