Article "Observe Ancient Custom"

Description

This 1923 article reports that the recent Westhampton junior/freshman class wedding was carried out "according to Chinese custom." The presidents of both classes were the participants in the ceremony. The ceremony, which included carrying the bride on a "red sedan chair" and "pay[ing] homage to the groom's ancestors," is described in detail. The bride and groom, and assumedly most if not all planners and participants, were white women.
