Miss Auburn 1947-48 Essie Crumpton looks just like Katy Perry (who played at Auburn that one time)

Katy Perry came to Auburn in 2001. We know that now. But then Mr. Bagwell was all like, uh, wasn’t she a student here in the 40s?

Essie Crumpton probably kissed a nice Auburn boy and got pinned and engaged and married and liked it happily ever after.

Dude, it’s just like time-traveling Nicolas Cage and John Travolta (another star with Auburn connections). Seriously, Gawkwer needs to run with this (just be sure to link GAUker).

Auburn coeds actually have a proud history of doppelgangin’ with celebrities past and present. Bobby Lowder’s sister-in-law was once the spitting image of Community and Mad Men star Alison Brie, and “Sylvia Brown” may actually, literally have been Bettie Page. We’re still checking.
