(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 259: Edward Seaver Graduates From College

I'm posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they aren't Wordless Wednesday posts like others do - I am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here is a photograph from the Seaver/Richmond family photograph collection passed to me by my cousin Laura in 2008:

This photograph shows Alma Bessie (Richmond) Seaver (1882-1962), Edward Richmond Seaver (1913-2004), and Frederick Walton Seaver (1876-1942) on the happy occasion of Ed's graduation from Columbia University, probably in 1935.  I don't know the exact setting for the photograph, but it is probably at Columbia in New York City.

Alma Bessie and Frederick were my paternal grandparents, and Ed Seaver was my father's only brother that survived childhood.  Ed was the first college graduate in my Seaver line, I believe.  He also played college football and the team went to the 1934 Rose Bowl, defeating Stanford 67-0 on a rainy day.  

My thanks to cousin Laura for sending this picture, and many others, to me, and for permitting me to display them.
