Matriculating into Marriage Pt II

Vintage ad college graduate and bride 1940s

Vintage ad 1948 Cavalier Cedar Chests -Perfect to pack away all your lovely things for your new married life.

Looks like the gal graduate in this ad was one smart cookie and not just because she earned a college diploma.

Betty Coed knew college was the best place to snare a man to marry. Maybe the Princeton Mom was onto something.

Of course this ad ran in 1948, only confirming that Susan Patton’s silly advise to husband hunt in college is as antiquated as the notion once held that girls went to college to get their MRS degree.
