 Postcard FDC #1



FDC


The Columns on the campus of Westminster College are the only remnant of the original Westminster Hall, destroyed by fire in 1909. Two of the most revered Westminster traditions are the fall Convocation when new students enter the campus through The Columns and Commencement when graduating students pass back through The Columns into the world.

The postcard of The Columns used to create this FDC was not one of recent vintage when stamped in 1965. The postage box on the back of the card calls for a one cent stamp, which means the card dates from before 1952, when the postcard rate increased from one cent to two cents.
