Florida State University--Sports
Found in 6 Collections and/or Records:
FSU Chief Full-a-Bull costume, circa 1969 (of questionable validity). While it has some native American features, it does not resemble the costume in the 1969 Tally Ho yearbook.
The collection consists of the 1955 freshman Rat Cap, and the 1955-1956 freshman basketball uniform (number 54) belonging to David G. Hortin when he was a member of the team. The freshman basketball team uniforms were the "hand-me-downs" from the varsity team. At the end of the season the players were permitted to keep the uniforms.
This collection consists of an oral history interview transcript of Roy Mack Holt, who was enlisted in the U.S. Navy and worked as a Navy aircraft pilot during World War II, serving on anti-submarine patrols on the Atlantic coast and the Caribbean Sea (Cuba, Brazil, and Morocco). The interview covers his life before and after service. The interview also describes his years after the war studying at Florida State University. This collection also includes a small fragment of his obituary.
The collection, donated by Jack Crothers to Heritage Protocol, consists primarily of ephemera relating to Florida State sports teams, especially football. The collection includes pennants, a variety of ticket stubs spanning much of the history of Florida State football, and pompons for every ACC team as of 2004. Other items include a jacket acquired from a Seminole Indian reservation and a program for the 1964 commencement ceremony at Florida State University.
Personal photographs of William Smith, including photos taken for a Photo Journalism class assignment.
