Description
 
A collection of four items relating to Yale University. The first item is program to the 25th Annual Banquet of the Yale News, which took place on March 7, 1902. This was the quarter-centennial for the Yale Daily News, and the ten page program (including covers) features a menu and a list of guest, as well as a little description of the newspaper itself. Portions of this program look as though they are a newspaper rather than an event program. String binding. Measures 8" x 5 1/2". The second item is the menu from the Alumni dinner on June 25, 1902 that took place at University Hall. It is a single fold program with a decorative blue ribbon. The interior of the menu features a black and white photograph of University Hall, and a menu, that lists such dishes as larded fillet of beef and Neapolitan ice cream. Measures 5" x 4" (folded), 8" x 5" (unfolded). The third item is menu to an unknown, undated event at Yale. Each item on the menu has 'Yale' in the title, such as Yale Oyster Stew and Yale Apple Pie. The menu is printed with blue ink  and features several small decorative devices along the border. Measures 10" x 4". The last item is a small, possibly unrelated, card with a handwritten sentiment. Measures 3 1/2" x 2"..
