Franklin & Marshall's groovy
1972-1973 student directory

I thought this find would be fun to share. Here, from nearly a half-century ago, is the cover of Franklin & Marshall College's 1972-73 student directory. It's staplebound, 120 pages and 5½ inches wide. This copy originally belonged to a woman named Julie, who came from Long Island, New York, to attend the esteemed Lancaster college.

The Names & Numbers directory has this disclaimer on the first page: "The information in this Directory is a direct result of the data supplied by the students. Its accuracy is limited by the information they supply."

The list of college telephone extensions includes these departments: Academic Computing, Addressograph, Boiler House, Computer Center, Data Processing, Faculty Dining Room, Glee Club, Green Room, Lost and Found, and Warehouse.

Alphabetically, the first student is Theodore Abel and the last student is Richard Zupcak. Actor Treat Williams should have been at F&M at this time, but he is not listed in the directory. There is a Neville J. Lord listed in the directory. He goes by Jeffrey Lord now and was a high-profile commentator for CNN until he made trouble for himself on Twitter in 2017.
