A colleague was looking through the US Naval Academy yearbook, The Lucky Bag 1959 and I noticed that a midshipman was reading Mad as a first year student (which is internally dated as being 1955, logically enough for a four year college). So I scanned it thinking that it was just another example of someone reading comics in an earlier day.
But what's odd is that this cover, showing Alfred E. Neumann walking away from a trash can labelled 'What me worry?" doesn't actually seem to be a 1955 MAD cover, based on the Grand Comics Database's cover gallery.
What it actually is though is the first issue of More Trash from Mad from 1958 with art by Kelly Freas. So, shockingly, somebody mis-attributed the date of the photograph in the yearbook.
