Wharton students today certainly aren’t in want of extracurricular activities. The Wharton Graduate Association now supports more than 100 different clubs, including 18 athletics clubs that allow students to participate in everything from basketball to rugby, squash to volleyball, ultimate Frisbee to crew. There’s even a club dedicated to “roadrunners and triathletes.” Certainly, the choices weren’t always so extensive. But those early Whartonites didn’t have it too bad. Besides, they had a bowling club (pictured)—and today’s students don’t. This stately image of the long-lost Wharton Bowling Club was taken from a 1911 edition of the Wharton Evening School Record. The photographer is unknown.
