Two Yalies at the Fence

One of Yale’s football traditions is to picture their football captain sitting on the Yale Fence. This lovely 1897 Yale v. Princeton program captures the tradition with an unusual twist.

Yale had co-captains in 1897 and don’t they look fantastic snuggled up together on the fence!

The football shaped program was fairly common during this era.
