I.D. Cards

These are two of my father’s i.d. cards.  One is his student activity card for Wayne (Nebraska) State Teachers College.  It surprises me that it would cost $3.25 for one semester in 1933.  Seems pricey.

  1. I agree that $3.25 seems expensive for the time and, surprisingly, it looks like he used it only three times. These must come from your private collection? (I was hoping that things like these were being scanned and made available by some organization, but probably not….)


    • They are private collection – my Dad was a bit of pack rat! I scan them so I can put them online – get them out into the world. I have no idea what to do with most of the items I have. I’ve sent things to the Wayne Museum and not been able to get a response. Any ideas what to do with things? Thanks.
