Description
Students involved with the senior class original drills featuring the Canterbury Inn line up outside Campbell Hall as part of the wedding processional. Students wore traditional Elizabethan costumes; religious attendants hold crosses and don robes at the beginning of the line. The May Queen and her attendants are in the middle of the procession.
<em>The Monmouth Herald</em> reported, "The moving pageantry and pomp offered by the senior class was very effective and splendidly carried out. The Canterbury Inn, the church, the variegated costumes of the moving throng, the dances, the dramatic entrance of the pageant wagon drawn by spirited horses, the clever bits of humorous acting all served to show the lives of all classes of people in Elizabethan times" (May 12, 1916).
