The altar of the Romantics

ABOVE: An altar for dead military service members, erected by the Social Work Club.

BELOW: The altar of the English Club, featuring Rudyard Kipling (I think), Oscar Wilde, Jane Austen and ... one of the Brontes?

I was wrong in my earlier prediction. A couple of the non-traditional (university-speak for over 25) members of the English Club moved quickly and built a Day of the Dead altar for that university that I mentioned. (Count on the non-traditional students to get things done.) There were seven altars in all; I don't know who won the competition, but the massive edifice for Frida Kahlo in the basement of the Psychology Building was a strong contender, says a Psychology professor of my acquaintance.
