Antique WWII Yale University Class 1945 W Felt Banner & Rowing Team Photographs
…..When we were first consigned the antique Felt Banner from Yale University I was confused why there was a “W” next to the year 1945. After a quick search on the internet I was able to learn all about the Yale University Class of 1945 W. Below is an exact quote from the Chairman of this class.
“We entered Yale in July of 1942, the first class to enter the accelerated war time program which used the summer as a semester. Instead of graduating in four tears, 1946, we were scheduled to finish two and a half years later in February, 1945. For most of the class that was not what happened. ...... Enlistment into the various military services training programs or simply into service delayed graduations of most members to later classes, 1946 through 1950. Despite the established tradition of maintaining a connection to Yale as the year of graduation, most of us chose our identity to be that of the Class of 1945W. Our story is not much different from the few classes before and after us, but the story is still worth telling simply because it is ours.”
……The 30“ by 17 1/2“ Felt Banner in this auction is guaranteed to be an authentic Yale University Banner from the WWII-period Yale Class of 1945W. It was manufactured by the Chicago Pennant Co and the condition is perfect and clean with no stains, holes or any repairs. Along with this 1945W Yale Banner comes the three original Photographs you see pictured. Although these photographs are not identified, we have compared the two Rowing Team Photos to other’s that have sold, and the boathouse in the background is definitely the old Yale Boathouse. These three photographs are in perfect condition and to make sure some eBayer wins this Yale University Auction, it has been listed with No Reserve!
