From this month's Michigan Today we have a 1920s book with 100+ pages of advice to incoming freshmen. The article is here http://michigantoday.umich.edu/2012/01/story.php?id=8106&tr=y&auid=10129814 and the full book is here http://www.archive.org/stream/advicetofreshme00fresgoog#page/n6/mode/2up .
Some of the book is quaint, some sexist (to 21st century ears), and some downright awesome. An example of the latter:
A bore drifts into other people's rooms, occupies their best chair; eats their fudge; reads their new magazines before they themselves have a chance to; plays their Victrola and scratches their best records. A bore talks hours at a time about people whom you have never heard of and in whom you haven't the slightest atom of interest… She is avoided like the plague.
The photos are great, too.
(I'm assuming the fellow on the left is Johnny Rotten's grandpappy until proven otherwise.)
Enjoy! And please add any choice quotes you like to the comments.
