Throwback Thursday: Haskell Institute Football

For this Throwback Thursday, let us go back to the 1930 football season. This photograph depicts the members of the Haskell Institute football team posing outside Hiawatha Hall on the campus in Lawrence, Kansas. The men are from left to right: Arnes Barlow, Paul Edge, Leonard Barlow, Guy Bush, Charles Bernard, and Led Wilson.

The Haskell Institute’s nationally recognized football team was coached by John Levi [1898-1946; Inunaina (Arapaho)], who was a Haskell full-back himself in the mid-twenties and led his team to many victories.

This photo is part of the National Museum of the American Indian’s recently processed and digitized Haskell Institute photograph album (NMAI.AC.105). To learn more about the Haskell Institute and check out the entire collection, head on over to the Smithsonian Online Virtual Archives (SOVA).
