Title

Varsity Dance is Big Success [Article]
The Collegian, Vol. II
Pages 1, 3

Description

The article discusses the Varsity club's first social gathering to commemorate its beginning as an official club at the University. The article specifically mentions that everyone was enjoying the music provided by “a negro orchestra,” which may explain the illustrations in the University of Richmond's yearbooks from 1914-1917 that feature illustrations of African Americans playing instruments in a band. "Negro" orchestras were used at select events in this time period.
