1941 Mid-Winter Ball

Fri., Mar. 7, 1941

The annual Mid-Winter Ball of 1941 was met with significant snow that made the orchestra an hour late to the dance.  The Mid-Winter Ball Queen, Marion VanAuken, was crowned in her room at the Carlisle Hospital, illness preventing her from attending the affair.  The theme was "Pan-American"; the gymnasium was decorated with palms, cycads, and flags.
