A group of Middlebury College students head off into the mountains with their professor, Charles D. Howell, Asst. Prof. of Biology, 1938-43.
Also visible is the Women's Athletic Association Lodge (or W.A.A. Lodge), located on the North Branch Road in Ripton, VT. The W.A.A. Lodge was the dream of Professor of Physical Education Marion L. Young and served as an outdoor center in her program for women's athletics. Designed and built by Charles Harvi '38, on property donated by Marion Young, the W.A.A. lodge was a 30' x 40' two-story post and beam structure which boasted a large central stone fireplace and sleeping accommodations for 26 guests. It was completed the first week of September on the eve of the devastating hurricane of 1938. Marion Young died tragically in an automobile accident just weeks later, but hundreds of Middlebury women enjoyed the W.A.A. Lodge as a popular outdoor destination throughout the 1940s and mid-1950s. It was destroyed by a fire in January 1965, with only the fireplace left standing.
