I’m bookmarking pages in the University of Mary Washington: A Centennial History 1908-2008 by William B. Crawley Jr. that have information on the pairs of pictures that I am working with. I came across this Devil Goat Day poem from the 1938 Bullet! I thought it was kind of cool, especially since I love being a Devil.
“Just after you’ve been entered here in the fall,
You’ll be heralded and welcomed by a tribal call.
Either Devil or Goat as the case may be
And expected to support it with loyalty…
The emblems of green Goats and Devils of red
Are sported by students–
even to bed.”
(Devil Goat Day poem in the 1938 Bullet)
