Swarthmorean History Contest

Find the historic Swarthmorean story, photo or ad in this week’s edition, and help us unlock a historical treasure trove.

The winner gets a Swarthmore Historical Society T-shirt, but a special prize will go to the 5th through 7th grader who finds the story. All ages are welcome!

1. Identify the item that came from a Swarthmorean of bygone times.

2. Estimate its original date and tell us how you know.

3. E-mail your answer, your name, and address by 5 p.m. March 25, to editor@swarthmorean.com.

We’ll draw one entry from among all correct answers, and the winner will be announced in the April 1 issue. All correct entries, along with an image of the original historic Swarthmorean issue, will be posted at swarthmorean.com.
