Freshman Barack Obama photos unearthed; he liked hats

March 30, 2009 |  4:12 pm

There was a time, believe it or not, when Barack Obama was even younger. Back when Joe Biden was already a veteran senator from Delaware.

In those innocent days, Obama struck a fellow Occidental College freshman, Lisa Jack, as a pretty cool dude. So, unwittingly, she had him pose for a bunch of photos as the only person to know he would become president of the United States.

Now Jack is an assistant professor of psychology in Minnesota. But starting in late May, her 36-photo collection will be a two-month show at the M+B Gallery in West Hollywood. Our buds over at Culture Monster have more details and some black-and-white samples here.
