Pee-wee at Harvard, 1985

Pee-wee Herman points to a Harvard University banner during a parade celebrating his recognition with an Elmer Award from The Harvard Lampoon in Cambridge, Mass., in 1985.

The childlike character portrayed by actor Paul Reubens is best known for both his television and film series during the 1980s.

The Lampoon is an undergraduate humor publication founded by seven Harvard undergrads in 1876.

Very few newspapers were publishing color photos at this time; so, I was usually shooting black-and-white film, which was both cheaper and simpler to process.
