SPOOK and SPECTRE

 

1908057Perfect for Halloween, here are several pictures of Spook and Spectre, a dormitory society from Centenary Collegiate Institute’s early days. It was organized in 1904 and disbanded in 1910 after Centenary became an all girls school.

Whether they were influenced by spiritualism/occultism or just wanted to be spooky is unknown. Enjoy these great ghoulish photos and happy haunting!

  1. I would “kill” to have something like this in the Drew University Archives, especially given some of our Halloween programming next week. Your collection of student society photos is one of the best I’ve seen. As I’ve said before, I really enjoy your blog posts. Keep up the great work.
