“Through The Pines”
The 1946 yearbook is important in many respects, among which is the resumption of normalcy for campus life. Furthermore, the publication ends the absence brought on by material shortages during the war. The most important aspect of the book is the editor’s acknowledgment of those Concordians who shipped off to war and never returned.
“To all those young sons of Concord College who gave their lives that we might joyously walk our campus free and unafraid...”.
It is a bittersweet message from a bittersweet time in our nation’s history. Human sacrifice made victory possible and Concordians can be proud of the role they played. The 1946 yearbook is ultimately a positive symbol as noted by President Stewart, “Let us face the future in hope and confidence”.
