Committee for Arts and Lectures Records (University Archives)
Tonight is the 100th Pajamarino and though it’s changed from a late night pajama clad greeting of alumni at the train station followed by a bonfire and rally, the Student Alumni Association keeps the spirit alive. The Student Alumni Association hosts an evening of free entertainment, games, face painting, food, prizes and of course a pajama contest for alumni, students and the community.
This photograph from the University Archives is of a group of students at the Homecoming/Pajamarino rally and is undated. Please comment if you can identify any of people in the photograph or any other information. Are they leaving the rally? Driving to it? Was the car part of the march to the train station? Where was the photograph taken and when? Any information or memories of past Pajamarinos are welcome.
Archives Month is a collaborative effort by archivists around the nation to highlight the importance of historical records. Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. has issued a proclamation making October 2012 “Archives Month” in California. More information about Archives Month events in California is available on the California Archives Month website.
Special Collections is celebrating Archives Month by participating in the second annual Sacramento Archives Crawl on Saturday, October 6. We’ll have a table at the California State Library. Stop by and say hello!
Here is a preview of one of the images that we will have on display at the Archives Crawl.
