Rose Bowl Game Scrapbook, 1941-1942View associated digital content.

The Rose Bowl Game Scrapbook was assembled by Bob Panagis and documents the Oregon State College football team's journey to the 1942 Rose Bowl game. It is made up of newspaper clippings, photographs, menus, itineraries, and stationery collected from the trip. Bob Panagis, a student at OSC and a member of the football team, attended the game and collected various ephemera from the trip. The 1942 Rose Bowl is the only Rose Bowl to have been played outside of Pasadena, California. The Beavers beat the Duke University Blue Devils 20-16.

The scrapbook is in fragile condition and a digital surrogate should be consulted as a primary source of access. This surrogate is available in the Special Collections and Archives Research Center Reading Room, or remotely upon request.

Statement on Description:

We acknowledge that materials in SCARC collections and the language that describes them may be harmful. We are actively working to address our descriptive practices; for more information please see our SCARC Anti-Racist Actions Statement online.

The archivist-prepared description of this collection uses the phrase “Civil War” to refer to the long-standing athletic rivalry between Oregon State University and the University of Oregon. A history of this athletic rivalry, and use of the phrase “Civil War” to describe it, is available online in The Origins of the "Civil War" Football Game blog post.

In June 2020, Oregon State University President Edward J. Ray announced that the term  “Civil War” will no longer be used by either university because it “represents a connection to a war fought to perpetuate slavery.”

We acknowledge the racism represented by the use of this phrase and the harm it may cause our users. In order to provide historical context and to enable standardized searching and access across our collections, we have retained the use of this phrase in the collection description.
