Three Yale men in drag; probably members of “Dramat”, the theatrical society founded in 1900. Yale men were famous for this - The New Haven newspaper even lamented that “no woman is as beautiful as a Yale man impersonating femininity”. In 1915, The Yale Dean of College forbade students to play female roles for more than one season. :) (source: http://ift.tt/1sD7327)
