Title

The Web 1947 "Phi Gamma Delta"

Description

In the middle photo at the bottom of the second page of the Phi Gamma Delta spread, two life-size, extremely caricatured African cut-out figures can be seen outside of a Phi Gamma Delta (or "Fiji") Tent. The caption reads,"Dr. Livingstone, I presume," referring to Henry Morton Stanley's famous words when he discovered Dr. Livingstone, a Scottish medical missionary doctor and explorer who was presumed to be lost somewhere in Africa. Although a proponent of European colonialism, Dr. Livingstone also was a staunch abolitionist. The fraternities on campus had recently reopened after World War II.
