We present age measurements for 195 star clusters in the Small Magellanic Cloud based on comparison of integrated colors measured from the Magellanic Clouds Photometric Survey with models of simple stellar populations. We find that the modeled nonuniform changes of cluster colors with age can lead to spurious age peaks in the cluster age distribution; that the observed numbers of clusters with age t declines smoothly as t-2.1; that for an assumed initial cluster mass function scaling as M-2… Expand
