rc01170Portraits of the first Cotillion Club members - Tallahassee, Florida

Florida State University was a female-only college for many years. I’m guessing the seniors wore the dresses and underclassmen took the male role, but I may be wrong. Above, you see the first Cotillion Club members. The year was 1911.

My novel uses female factions and the early sororities and clubs, will probably play a role; if I can focus on creating my puzzle. Two apparently had a problem disguising their chest.
