A Fasching party at HGS

In February 1958, when we were grad students living in the Hall of Graduate Studies, Charlie Neff ’61PhD and I wistfully shared our memories of the German “fifth season.” Charlie had experienced it as Fasching in Bavaria; I experienced it as Karneval in the Rhineland. The partying season opened on January 7 and culminated in Rose Monday and Fat Tuesday/Fett Dienstag/Mardi Gras.

We agreed that HGS needed a Fasching party. But how to bring it off?
