Like any good cultural historian, I spent part of my Sunday evening poking around the Library of Congress digital archive. I came across this 1939 photo by Marion Post Wolcott entitled “Spectators standing outside the gate of the Duke University Stadium because there were no more seating accomodations. Duke University-North Carolina game. Durham, North Carolina.” I suspect this is for a football game, but I haven’t confirmed that. I love that this captures the fact that people wore dresses and suits to college sporting events. I’d like to meet the person who finally said, “I’m sick of wearing this goddam vest to basketball games–I’m going with the giant foam finger!”
