Armor plate from USS Texas (1892) at the Illinois state fair in Springfield, sometime between September 17 to 25, 1915.

I have not been able to find out what happened to this armor plate after the fair. Most likely it was scrapped.

By Miriam Kleiman, Public Affairs
Students: Compare & contrast past and present pandemic guidance. Should the CDC advise the following?
- Avoid wet feet! - Stay away from Boston! - Boil or destroy your handkerchief after sneezing! - Keep regular hours! - Watch out for "coughers" and "sneezers"! - NO spitting! - Have back pain? Go home!
Most importantly, even if tempted, DO NOT EXPECTORATE PROMISCUOUSLY!!!

Exercise caution when getting a haircut! Pandemic Flashback! U-C Berkeley 1919 U-C Berkeley creatively responded to the “pandemic hair” challenge (@1919) with an “Open air barber shop.” Students, soldiers and staff traded overgrown locks and scruffy facial hair for the fashionable “high and tight.”
