Spirit Day 2015: Mystery Gear

Posted by Jenifer Monger on February 12, 2015 in

This Friday is RPI's 4th annual Spirit Day, in which member's of the Rensselaer community are encouraged to show their pride by wearing or displaying RPI gear.

We consider spirit everyday here in the Archives where it pervades the memorabilia collections that we house. We have certain items because they say Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute but we don't know who owned them, wore them, or touched them. We simply know that at some point in history certain items had particular significance to someone!

Since we can't wear our gear to show Spirit, maybe you can infuse some into these items by telling us if you've ever seen them before, and when or why?
