dc.description.abstractThis image shows three women and three men on the grounds of the Kalamazoo College campus. The caption reads, “Being campused don’t spoil our good times. Sun. Apr 6, 1913.” The photo appears in the scrapbook of Lydia Buttolph, Class of 1916. On April 2, a student living in the men’s dorm was diagnosed with smallpox which led to a flurry of vaccinations among students.en_US
dc.description.abstractThe Kalamazoo Gazette reported on April 8th that, “Kalamazoo college is not quarantined, nor has the board of health threatened to close the school. The report of yesterday that there were three new cases among the girls at Ladies’ hall is today denied. One of the cases has proven to be a well developed case of German measles…” No other students caught smallpox although the Kalamazoo Gazette reported on April 20th that a student was suffering from varioloid, which is a mild case of smallpox found in people who have either been vaccinated or sickened by the disease previously.
