Today's Tidbits... Logos and Pads at 1900s South Dakota ($)
I rarely check out the 1901 to 1903 University of South Dakota football teams, but I know I will find some good stuff when I do. I looked at their yearbooks while seeking information about A. H. Whittemore, the USD coach for two of those years. You may recall Whittemore was mentioned in a recent Tidbit for being slapped in the face by a Nebraska fan who thought Whittemore was coaching from the sideline.
Yearbooks back then often contained little information on the football team other than a team picture and one page of scores or commentary. The 1903 yearbook (produced by the Class of 1903 and issued in 1902) included a typical studio image of the team.
