‘Fussing’ Over Those Liberal, Broad Men

Churning social change, 1950s-style. This sort of discussion, inevitably, continues today.

From The Collegian:

“Willamette is getting progressively more liberal and the men broader … [t]he trend of the University liberal policy is dramatized on the cover of the Fusser’s Guide for the past three years.

The Fusser’s Guide was Willamette’s original social network: a pocket-sized student roster over which undergraduates could, well, fuss. It still exists as the printed campus directory, and its cover today is an artful photo taken in the Japanese garden. Hardly risqué.
