Overview


The storied history of Harvard University football can be traced back to the very roots of the collegiate game in America. Harvard's athletic contest with McGill University in 1874 marked the inception of the modern game for the Crimson. The club from Cambridge then went on to become one of the dominant football programs of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, winning seven national championships between 1890 and 1919, culminating with its Rose Bowl victory over Oregon in January 1920. Since 1956, the team has been a

perennial contender in the Ivy League. Images of Sports: Harvard Football captures all the drama and excitement of the pioneering football program's legacy. Included are the exploits of Charlie Brickley in the 1910s and Barry Wood in the 1930s; the school's first Ivy League title in 1961 and the 29-29 "victory" over Yale in the most famous of all one hundred eighteen riveting match-ups. The captivating images included in Harvard Football detail these accounts up to the Crimson's 2001 run to perfection, a 9-0-0 record, marking the first undefeated, untied season in eighty-eight years.
