Harvard Radios vs. Princeton Aviators Vintage Football Poster, circa 1918

About

This is a very scarce first World War I Work Relief Fund Poster featuring the Harvard Radios competing against the Princeton Aviators -- this was a benefit football game that raised money for the war effort. The following was written about the match in the New York Times: New York Times, November 23, 1918 –– “Today marks the climax of the most irregular football season the gridiron sport has ever known… Here in New York there will be an unusually attractive football bill. First of all the war fund benefit at the Polo Grounds will probably attract the greatest attention, for it will bring together service elevens from Harvard and Princeton. The Harvard Radio School will play the Aviation School eleven from Old Nassau, and as both of these teams have already proved their worth, an exciting struggle is expected.” The Harvard team, composed of both Harvard and Boston College students making up the Radio School, were victorious over the Princeton Aviators 28-0. Presented using the finest archival materials and procedures.
