Throwback Thursday: Fort Yale

After World War II, veterans came back in droves—often with wives and children—to enroll at Yale. They were greeted by a familiar site: the ubiquitous military Quonset hut, adapted for married-student housing. The snow-covered huts featured 75 years ago on our January 1948 cover were on Whitney Avenue near the Peabody Museum. There were more near the Yale Bowl.
