If you were a student at Iowa State College in 1953, one of the many activities you could take part in was square dancing! The group was known as the Promenaders.
As of this writing, I do not know anything more about the Square Dancing Convention in Chicago, but I’m sure it would be really interesting to learn more!
It looks like the Promenaders were having a great time! College is a time of exploration, and we have records for many of the unique and interesting clubs that have been available over the years. Have a particular club you want to learn more about? Come visit us in the archives on the 4th floor of Parks Library!
