The villa, winter of 1952

These  photos were forwarded to our offices from our elder brethren who attended the original (ie pre-American) Villa.
We were led to believe these photos, showing students sledding near the villa woods, were from 1951, but have been  corrected by graduate Francois Ronsin.
The second photo is ice-skating on the frozen Sarine.
If you have historical photos, please forward them to our offices at
The editors..

  1. Je suis sûr qu'il y a une erreur. Ces deux photos datent de l'hiver 1952, pas de l'année précedente. Les quatre garçons que vous voyez assis sur les luges sont, de gauche à droite, André Trigallez, Gérard Dubost, François Bouvot et moi.François Ronsin (Villa St Jean de Oct 1948 à juillet 1956)
