Ralph Bunche- Air Nobel Peace Prize (1927)

Future Nobel Peace Prize winner Ralph Bunche models Chucks and shorty shorts in this photograph. The photo says ca. 1931, however Bunche graduated from UCLA in 1927- so this photo is either from then or from his later scholarly pursuits at Harvard. Bunche was an all around athlete at UCLA before moving on to help write the UN charter and broker peace in the Middle East, for which he won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1950. Below, Bunche at far right rocks a cool letterman sweater at Harvard. I’m guessing that C stands for California?
