The way we were: 1910

You have to wonder who was in charge of cleanup after these students finished their slices of watermelon at the Joint Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Ohio’s Luther Seminary, Phalen Park, St. Paul, Minn.

(Note: Originally the German Practical Theological Seminary, it began in Afton, Minn., in 1885. In 1893 it moved to the shores of Lake Phalen in St. Paul and was renamed Luther Seminary. By the 1920s, the institution had an academy, a two-year college and a three-year seminary. Co-education was added in 1927. In 1932 the school consolidated with Wartburg Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa. In 1935, the two-year college merged into Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa.)
