The Drab Years
Things must have been pretty dull around the University of Kentucky in the late 50s and early 60s. The first photo is from a Lambda Chi Alpha mixer in 1957. Of course, this photo could have been staged for parents and alumni. And as soon as the photographer left they broke out the bourbon and Elvis records.
The second is from 1962, and shows a group of young Kentucky gentlemen ignoring a lone uke player. If my suspicion about these shots being staged is correct, this was snapped just before the strippers from Covington arrived.
