The Crisis of the Depression

Board Lunches on the Vista
The Legislative Review Panel has a formal lunch on the Vista in 1932. The students and faculty of the Home Economics Department prepared and served the event. The entertainment was provided by the band and choirs. Use of the Vista for official functions like graduations as well as for picnics and even exercise classes was common in the early years before there was a university center or an auditorium. Aikåman Gym was the backup in case of bad weather.
