The chemistry class brought their aprons and glassware to the photography studio for this unusual group portrait from the late 1800s. The location is Monmouth, home of the Oregon State Normal School, dedicated to preparing future teachers. (It's now Western Oregon University.) It's notable that the class has as many women as it has men.
