Before leaving for winter vacation, the college celebrates the beginning of the roof with a tree ceremony.  On the right are Josef Albers (light coat), Anni Albers (scarf) and Alex Reed. The Alberses had been granted a sabbatical for the academic year. They spent the fall in Mexico and the spring semester in Cambridge where Albers was teaching at the Harvard School of Design.
