The last names of the women pictured are written on the back of the photograph, which has been trimmed so that some names are lost. The photographer is not identified.

    Kalamazoo College Kappa Pi Pageant, 1926
    (Kalamazoo College, 1926-05) Unknown
    Kalamazoo College's Kappa Pi society pageant, May 15 or 16, 1926.

It was written by Ethel Knox '15, a former member of Kappa Pi. The St. Cecelia Quintet of Grand Rapids (Mich.) provided the music, and costumes were designed by Elizabeth McTaggart. At the center is Ruth DeBow as "Womanhood." The other women pictured and the photographer are not identified.
