CAMPUS PHOTOS

The photos on this page are from a collection of papers found in 2007, in the cellar of the Vegetarian Society UK.

Most of these were stamped on the back; "Public Information Photo, University of Maine at Orono" and appear to have been sent to the Congress organizers for advance publicity. Other captions are from the notes on the back of each picture. Click on images for bigger photos.
