This home movie captures scenes of the Mitchell family celebrating birthdays, dancing at home, visiting with friends and family, and going swimming. In one scene, two of the Mitchell girls dress in flapper dresses and dance the Charleston in the living room. The family also visits Texas A&M University where they observe the Corps of Cadets performing their annual Final Review on Kyle Field.
The Texas A&M Corps of Cadets is a student military organization that teaches discipline and leadership skills to cadets, preparing them for a military career. When the Texas A&M was founded in 1876 in College Station, being a member of the Corps was a requirement. Participation in the Corps is now optional, since the school is no longer all-male, or strictly a military institution, but it still stands as an honored tradition. Reveille, a mascot for the "Fightin' Texas Aggies"- typically a collie or sheepdog, is often present in Corps processions. The Corps helped establish the identity of Texas A&M and remains an integral part of the university's persona.
