[HBCU Football] Souvenir Program Sat., Nov. 16, 1946 ... Lincoln University vs. Wilberforce University.


Just post-war and scarce, a football program for a game between two HBCUs, Lincoln University in Pennsylvania and Wilberforce University of Ohio. The gridiron match was played in Philadelphia and the program’s ads tout local businesses and a post-game student dance. Half tone illustrations sow both squads and a portrait of Lincoln’s president, Dr. Horace Mann Bond. Football squad lists for each team are annotated in ink, possibly indicating changes to the line up.
