"Details of the Convocation," Autumn Quarter, 1900
"Details of the Convocation," Autumn Quarter, 1900. Although convocations were held each quarter, their location shifted with the season and the number of prospective graduates. At his request, President Harper received elaborate descriptions of the convocation procession, which on this occasion began in Walker Museum, moved past a bandstand to a platform in front of North (now Gates) Hall, and ended at Haskell Hall.
