Title

Photograph "Wreck on Campus"

Description

This is a photograph with caption by Bob Perkins of a car crash on campus. A black dining hall worker was driving the car that "skidded out of control," which ultimately landed in a stream right off of new fraternity row. Neither the photo nor the caption name the worker involved, despite clarifying that there were no injuries reported. The photo depicts the car as hitting what appears to be an upended tree.
