Title

The Web 1962 "Candid Camera"

Description

This collage of images in the section "Candid Camera" published in The Web 1962 portrays the student life of Westhampton women. The middle left image of the third page depicts a student in a "Confederate And Stage" carriage that says "C.S.A. Mail" or Confederate States of America Mail. A photo on the top right of the fourth page shows a student entangled in strings with a mask on and a noose hanging in front; the noose brings to mind the imagery of lynching. On the bottom left of the second page, a caption for a group of Westhampton women states "W.C. chapter of the K.K.K". Some of the images on these pages portray Rat Week, which was a hazing event for freshman that commonly involved racist imagery and Lost Cause ideology.
