Handwritten text on back of card: Hello old timer, Guess you kind of think I've passed out of the picture. Would have written you sooner but have been quite busy. I will not be back at N.U. this year as I have adopted Duke University as my new Alma Mater. Say they have a swell Jazz team here! I'll write letter and tell you all about it. Ken Reynolds
