Dartmouth Winter Carnival Ski Posters

We just acquired an amazing collection of Dartmouth Winter Carnival Posters from the 1950s. National Geographic dubbed the Carnival the Mardi Gras of the North. The posters in the 1950s  were designed by students. The Carnival features a host of events including dogsled races, sporting events, Nordic and slalom skiing, an ice sculpture contest, drinking hot chocolate and much more. Carnival was the subject of the frothy 1939 motion picture comedy Winter Carnival, starring Ann Sheridan.
