Work Description: 
[Additional information available in source documentation.] Brackett had no caption on this negative but it is a close duplicate of 1-1, so both were taken in 1898…. would suggest that the pictures 1-1 and 1-2 were taken in the spring of 1898 and the three women were all freshmen. This is looking S.E. at the old Anatomy Building that stood in the quadrangle formed today by the Little Theater, Hellems, and Chemistry. Three women and one man are standing on a board walk in the foreground. Houses are visible in the background. ... The 1901 Yearbook lists a Nellis Drake, a Helen Richardson, and Elizabeth and Blanche Ricketts. In May 1973 Elizabeth, age 92, identified the Miss Ricketts as her twin sister Blanche. Above the head of the left lady one can see four electric wires running to the building, and above the left hand ground floor window is a box mounted on two pieces of 2x4 on the brick that looks like an electrical transformer. Electric wires are also visible on the right of the building. The girl on the left is Helen Richardson who partially hides Blanche Ricketts, and Nellie Drake is on the right. Elizabeth Ricketts could not identify the man in the photo. Blanche died in 1958. In the 50th reunion of the class of '01, the class members identified themselves as follows: Meany, Nellie Ella Drake (Mrs. George E. ), Ph.B. 122 N. Mt. Vernon, Prescott, Arizona .... Ricketts, Blanche Ethelyn, B.A., Boulder, Colorado .... Ricketts, Elizabeth Leota, B.A., Boulder, Colorado.
