Abstract:

Coinciding with the 40th anniversary of formal Ivy League football competition and highlighted by 112 vintage photographs, Ivy League Autumns celebrates the rich football tradition of the elite universities that pioneered the American college game. Long before college football became a multimillion dollar enterprise, Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Penn, Princeton, and Yale were battling each other in the muds of November and trading old-school yells.

Enmeshed in the football pageantry are the great names of American history and culture: Teddy Roosevelt, Cole Porter, John Reed, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and the Kennedy brothers all played a part in the grand traditions. Each school's glory days, as well as the sometimes stumbling afternoons in the age of de-emphasis, are brought to life in Goldstein's captivating and nostalgic text. Ivy League Autumns is the perfect companion for all of those who love college football and.

Believe that the student-athlete is not a notion of the past.
