#TBT: Caps off to Vintage Villanova!
Enjoy this throwback pic from 1939, when a couple of students experienced Freshman initiation for Villanova’s Centennial Class of 1943.
Did you know that vintage head caps like the ones in this photo can be found within the University Archives’ collection? The University Archives, housed on Falvey Library’s ground floor, contains many historic items from Villanova’s past, including photos, publications, and memorabilia.
If you are looking for more cool throwback pictures and information about Villanova’s history, you could also check also out the book Ever Ancient, Ever New: Villanova University 1842-1992. You will likely recognize many familiar faces, names, and landmarks on campus from years past.

When I was a freshman at a small college in West Virginia, we called those caps “dinks.” And couldn’t wait to be released from wearing them all day, every day.
The caps we saw in the archives were pretty small and didn’t look very comfortable!
Hope you are doing well, Alice. We all miss you at Falvey!
