Blue Man Group

Before 1894, when Yale adopted its special shade of blue (hex triplet #0F4D92), its school color was green. Kind of like the freshmen pictured above at a welcoming ceremony, 1964.

Now that they’re bulldogs, it’s time to start looking the part. First, a college sweater (1959):

Then a proper jacket. Freshman getting a sermon on the virtues of a natural shoulder, 1964:

Now for some extracurriculars, like the Yale-Vassar bike race, 1952:

And the Whiffenpoofs party, 1953:

Four years go by fast. Cleaning out the dorm room, 1957:

Today: cap and gown. Tomorrow: gray suit and white shirt to help the CIA rid the world of communism. — CC

  1. Looks like the bar is the last thing to get packed up.

    An epic battle of Bulldogs in 1929 when Yale journeyed down to Athens to play Georgia. The Yale band won the hearts of Georgia fans when, during the pre-game parade, it broke out in a rousing rendition of “Dixie!”
