Creation Date

February 1957


In late December 1956, Bard welcomed 325 Hungarian refugee students fleeing a failed revolution in their home country. These students were offered a two-month orientation program that included intensive English language instruction and help adjusting to life in the United States. This image captures the torchlight procession marking the conclusion of this Hungarian Student Orientation, during which participants made their way to the homes of President Case and staff members. Director of the program Willie Frauenfelder and his wife Helene are at the center, reading a message of thanks from the students.
