1941 Aerial

My View at 1,000 Feet

Carl Baumgaertner '48 was the photo editor of the Kaydet, the St. Thomas Military Academy yearbook. He snapped the first aerial photo of campus on Dec. 6, 1941, from a J-3 Piper Cub piloted by George Kell, a fellow student who ran the Kaydet's darkroom. St. Thomas has grown and changed since that photo was taken, and those changes have been documented from the sky above campus.
