With more than 120 freshmen signing the St. John’s College register on August 26 in Annapolis, we looked back at Convocations past. Here are two images from the 1940s.

New students sign the college’s register in the late 1940s in Iglehart Hall. It looks like this photograph was taken from the raised track. Image courtesy of the Greenfield Library Archives (SJC-P-0883).
