1920’s Holy Cross Scrapbook

College of the Holy Cross Scrapbook compiled by William Hill McCann ’25

For those that enjoy the history of College of the Holy Cross, this is a great glimpse into the early days of football, basketball, baseball, and track. The scrapbook itself contains hundreds of documents from every aspect of the school, including athletics, drama, rules/regulations for students, local events, menus, and anything that was deemed important by Mr. McCann. I have included just a small portion of the images found within the scrapbook.

    Just terrific stuff.
    Wish that today’s hoops schedule had 3 games in Brooklyn as in the ‘21-‘22 season.
