Large Mounted and Framed Photograph of the Harvard Unit Bank of the Students' Army Training Corps, photographed by Noyman of Boston and Cambridge. C. 1918.

Frame measures approximately 18.5 x 15.5 inches. Photographic print measures 13 x 9.75 inches. Matted on a light gray cardstock mount with an embossed gray ruled border and photographer's name, Noyman, impressed in lower left and Boston & Cambridge, impressed in lower right. A nice clear, crisp image of the Harvard band members with their instruments probably taken late in 1918. The SATC was formed in the latter half of 1918 after the American entry into the First World War. Its purpose was to train college students in military asrts and preparation for service. SATC units were formed at nearly every major college in the country but the program was discontinued soon after the end of the war. Today, most institutions maintain archival collections of the records of the corps. The Harvard University collection has only 2 photographs of the program and does not include this image.
