Applicant, by Jesse Reklaw



'Applicant' by Jesse Reklaw:

“One night while rooting through the recycling bin for magazines, I found all the confidential Ph.D. applicant files for the biology department at an Ivy League university from the years 1965-1975. Stapled to many of the yellowed documents were photographs of the prospective students. They were treasures! I tore through the folders and rescued every portrait I could find. I had to have them. Only later did I realize I had to publish them”.

LOL, the guy on the top left looks kind of like Colin Firth.

I wonder where these people are now?

Yeah, I kind of worry that they might innocently pick up the book in Borders and be confronted by their mugshot and some horrible judgement based on their appearance.

But then again, it is amusing. ;)
