Photo Friday: Spot the Schust

Kingswood graduation, class of 1934. Cranbrook Archives.

Graduating from Kingswood required a very different sort of dress code in 1934.  Glamorous to modern eyes, these matching outfits were probably just as irritating to the senior girls as polyester caps and gowns are for Cranbrook seniors today.   Bonus: somewhere in this photo is a young Florence Schust.  Schust became better known as Florence Knoll after her marriage to Hans Knoll, and it was through her husband’s furniture company that she revolutionized modern interiors and furnishings.  Can you spot her?  The Center for Collections and Research staff votes for the serious-faced young woman in the front row, four in from the left.
