salvaged possessions assembled on campus lawn

M.A.C. cadets stand with their salvaged possessions on November 30, 1912. There were no human casualties, but on the morning after the fire it became apparent to all just how extensive the structural devastation truly was. Witnesses described an eerie calm that descended on the group of students and faculty who had fought the blaze through the night. That day would mark the beginning of a new era for Maryland Agricultural College.
