Charter Day in 1907 Photos

Charter Day was established in 1905 to commemorate the establishment of the institution by the NY State legislature.

May 5 was the date picked by former President John H. Finley to celebrate the establishment of the school. There used to be a college-wide assembly in the Great Hall in the morning and a student-faculty softball game in the afternoon.
