The judges table at an undated Flickertail Follies performance. UND Band Director John Howard is seated at the far left of the table, while Dr. Margaret Beede is in the middle. Established by Sigma Delta Chi, a national journalism society, the Flickertail Follies was a campus talent and variety show from 1925 until 1962. The Follies were suspended from 1932 to 1935 due to the Great Depression and from 1941 to 1945 for the Second World War. The Follies gained national attention in 1950 when it was featured in "Life Magazine". The show ended in 1962 but was revitalized for one year in 1982.
