About this Item

Nice program with comic cover design in purple, orange, white and black. Measures 8"x10-1/2". Only faults are vertical crease down the center from having been folded and a shadow from old price sticker to upper left corner at front. A fun program given the game's quirky history. For years Illinois and Northwestern played for the chance to win an old fire bell. But this year they not only had a new trophy, but a contest to name it. The wooden Indian was dubbed Sweet Sioux and was captured by Northwestern in a 13-7 game. Northwestern proudly displayed it in a case in their Patten Gym, but not for long. By the next face-off Sweet Sioux had been stolen. Eventually in 1947 it was replaced with a tomahawk, but Acacia, the fraternity which had donated it originally, somehow recoverd it and kept it at the frat house until 1985 when it was thought to have been lost in a fire. Great photos of the players of both teams, the cheerleaders (long skirts!) and much history and vintage advertising. Unpaginated. Bookseller Inventory # 19460

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
