A Look Back: May Day 1923

Photo provided by the Edmond History Museum.

Donovan Banzett and Stella Curtis pose for a photo in front of Old North Tower on the Central State Teachers College campus (now the University of Central Oklahoma) for the 1923 May Day celebration. The May Day event was an early campus tradition, much like a modern-day Homecoming. Stella was the elected queen and Donovan was her attendant.

May Day included dances by women taking physical education at the college and 120 girls from the training school on campus. Donovan Banzett, who was 20 years old in this photo, would go on to found the Edmond Booster newspaper, among other newspapers in the area.
