Public Health Dept. Inoculations in gymnasium of a high school, 1942 (Toronto Archives: Fonds 200, Series 372, Subseries 32, Item 892)
Getting “inoculated” in 1942 was basically a form of hazing for dudes, which included bending and stretching and performing some fancy dance moves, shirtless. The guys thought it was all in the name of fratolerance, and in a way, they were right: they were straight up illin’, but just not in the way they thought. The whole thing was an audition for the musical Pal Joey. Four of the guys didn't make the cut.
