Vil Nisi Verum Club Calvin College 1919

This is one of the few photographs I have come across of Dr. Van Til when he was young man. It is also the highest quality photo I have found (click on the link at the bottom and download the original 49.8 mb tif file) apart from a few photos for purchase at I have an interest in high quality photos and art of Dr. Van Til. Any leads in the quest to acquire more  would be very much appreciated.

      Yes, thank you brother for bringing that to my attention. I read your reply and did some checking. I used the (incorrect) title from the Calvin College Hekman Digital Library. I found an interesting article about the club: written for the Calvin College Student Newspaper “Chimes”. I corrected the title where I could.
