Gaspar F. Perricone (1928 -    ) Scrapbook

 Collection
Identifier: 31/6/116

  • Staff Only
The Gaspar Perricone scrapbook features material largely relating to the years during which Perricone played football at Northwestern, mainly his seasons on the varsity team.  The material, arranged chronologically, includes newspaper accounts of games, ticket stubs, program covers, rosters, photographs, and other ephemera.  The scrapbook permits a detailed view of Perricone’s football career and of the accomplishments of the Northwestern teams of the late 1940s.  Of particular note are the colorful entries relating to the 1948 season and the 1949 Rose Bowl.

Some loose items found within the covers of the scrapbook have been foldered separately by format:  clippings (including a profile which appeared in the winter, 2006, issue of Northwestern magazine), correspondence, and a few photographs.
