The Drake University Cheer Team 1962-1963

These six cheerleaders made up the entire cheerleading squad during the 1962-1963 academic year.

Today, there are more than 21 members of the Drake Cheer Team—18 women and three men. But, that’s not the only difference between then and now. Notice the team’s uniform? The bulldog doesn’t look like what we’re familiar with today. And, is that “DU” sketched into the eyes?

Regardless, this photo makes us want to yell, “Go Bulldogs!”
