It may be basketball season, but Gonzaga is celebrating its football history with a new exhibit titled “Undefeated Since 1941: the History of Gonzaga Football”. The exhibit is now open to the public free of charge and is located in the Cowles Reading Room on the 3rd floor of Foley Library at Gonzaga University. The 99 items on display emphasize the most important aspects of Gonzaga’s football history and tell the story of why Gonzaga football has been absent from the American sporting scene since 1941. During the 1920s Gonzaga’s football program was considered one of the premier programs in the United States.
Exhibit highlights include a 1939 football, information about star players and coaches, the fan experience and the 1925 Indian Congress and football game against the Haskell Indian Institute.
The exhibit is open Monday-Thursday 7:30am-2am, Friday 7:30am-9pm, Saturday 10am-6pm, and Sunday 10am-2am. The exhibit is digitally available at researchguides.gonzaga.edu/football_history
The exhibit was guest curated by Gonzaga history intern Abby Tarantino, Class of 2020.
