c1910 · Lindsborg, KS
Lindsborg, KS: Bethany College, c1910. Bethany College was established by Swedish Lutheran immigrants in 1881. A liberal arts college.. A 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" card with an image from a photograph of young women graduates in a field of daisies gathering the ephemeral flowers. The reverse has a stylized, art nouveau influenced daisy at left. The narrative describes the Bethany Campus as one of the beauty spots in "Little Lindsborg" the Park City of the Smoky Valley. It describes the flowers, the jewels of Nature, appearing in their glory during Commencement time, that period of commingled joy and regret for the parting which can be known only by college students, and do no wither away until the last lingering ones have left their Alma Mater..."This picture of the daisies has evidently touched a responsive chord in the memories of old Bethany students, for ten thousand have been called for and still more are demanded."
