Description A classic 1902 college poster for Columbia University. A new century was in progress and this poster captured the life of a college student of the era. An undergraduate student is captured in a white turtleneck with the Columbia “C” on the front. He is seated in a chair smoking a cigarette. On a wall behind are three pictures—one of an athlete, one of an older person, perhaps a father, who is wearing a similar sweater, and a picture of a woman, perhaps a girlfriend or mother. On a shelf above him are a collection of tobacco pipes, plates and beer mugs, and a Columbia pennant.

This poster was done by John E. Sheridan, one of a small group of illustrators who brought style and talent to the art of posters. Mr. Sheridan produced covers for The Saturday Evening Post and other magazines.

Deutz Lithograph Co., New York, produced the original photolithograph on which this digital reprint is based.
