Additional Information

Members of Alpha Phi and Tau Kappa Epsilon perform "In Ireland there is a Legend" for the 1961 Flickertail Follies. Spotlights shine on the performers from the edge of the stage. Musicians play in front of the stage. Established by the Journalism Fraternity, Sigma Delta Chi, as a campus talent and variety show, The Flickertail Follies entertained the city of Grand Forks from 1925-1962. The Follies were, however, suspended from 1931-1935 due to The Depression and from 1941-1945 for World War II. The Follies gained national attention in 1950 when it was featured in "Life Magazine". The show was dropped in 1962 but was revitalized for one year in 1982.
