From caption on back of photograph: "Doris Thrall (front), of Oakland, is crowned queen of the College of Holy Names Mardi Gras by Mary Louise Goffroy (rear center), festival 'king.' Princesses are (left to right) Marie McCarthy, Patricia Wiggins, Dorothy Rossick and Betty Erichson." Five young women stand behind the seated "queen" in celebration of Mardi Gras. All the women wear formal white dresses and flowers except for the second from the proper left, who wears a black dress. The center standing woman wears a decorated tiara and is crowning the seated woman with a garland of flowers. The seated woman alone wears long white gloves. All six ladies are smiling.
