Title

Photograph collage "Homecoming 1949"

Description

An article and photo collage in the winter 1950 Alumni Bulletin detailed the events of Homecoming 1949. There was a football game, parade float contest, pre-Homecoming dinner, and alumni luncheon. One photo features a float that says "Bye! Bye! Indians," referencing the Homecoming rivalry with The College of William & Mary. The float features cemetery on the top, with a football helmet hanging on each grave marker. Two men, dressed as a football player and a priest, are near a coffin. William & Mary athletic teams were known as the Indians until the 1980s.
