Brown University Band Buttons

Ivy League Humor
On the Fridays before Brown's football team played at home, band buttons were handed out at Faunce House.  Here are some from our collection.

See if you can match up the right button with Dartmouth, Harvard, Cornell, and other institutions.  Use the color for guidance.  Some can be fairly obscure.

Two classic buttons, not shown here:
  • VE RI TASTY
  • CORN HELL
(One naughty word was pixelated out as it may/should offend some/all. The target was, however, Princeton. And the button was recalled and destroyed by the administration (appropriately) before distribution. This is one of the very few surviving examples.)
