Maple Sugaring - 1918

Maple Sugaring in 1918

With the United States entering World War I, the male portion of the student body was enrolled in a military curriculum, and women took over their campus jobs. They took a hand in making maple sugar in the spring of 1918, as seen here, and they harvested the college's apple crop the following fall.
