Original glossy 6 x 4 candid photo of Elon Musk as a 23-year-old senior at the University of Pennsylvania, showing him goofing about upside down on the floor of his girlfriend’s Quadrangle dorm room in 1994. In very fine condition.
This photo was taken by Musk’s girlfriend, Jennifer Gwynne, who he began dating in the fall semester of the 1994-1995 school year when they both lived and worked as Resident Advisors (RAs) in the ‘Spruce Street’ part of the University of Pennsylvania’s Quadrangle dorm. In 1995, after graduating from Penn with a Bachelor of Arts degree in physics and a Bachelor of Science degree in economics from the Wharton School, Musk migrated to Stanford University where had been accepted into the school's Ph.D. program in materials science. He left after two days to join the Internet boom and launch his first startup.
According to Gwynne: ‘Elon being silly in my dorm room in the Quad. I remember thinking that it was so good to know he had a silly side that he would let me see.’
