College phone booth stunt just like old times

Twenty-two students at St. Mary’s College of California have done something their predecessors famously did 50 years ago: crammed into a phone booth.

Inspired by a famous 50-year-old Life magazine photograph

MORAGA, Calif. — Twenty-two students at St. Mary’s College of California have done something their predecessors famously did 50 years ago: crammed into a phone booth.

Teams competed to fit as many bodies as possible into a phone booth on the campus green Wednesday, a half-century after Life magazine published a now-famous photograph of 22 St. Mary’s students stuffed into a phone booth, a popular college stunt in the 1950s.

Current students matched the number in the 1959 image, though they failed to break the campus record of 24 set in 1984.

St. Mary’s officials say a South African team set the world record of 25 in 1958.
